The subject is postform. Apparently it is so for the last time. At least insofar as Fausto is concerned. I never doubted that FM would not enjoy my reaction and the way I view his way of thinking. It is however encouraging to see that FM went out of his way to emphasise that he too will have no part in the current mediocre political ways and has shot a critical arrow where such criticism is due. It must be my perception that is wrong then and I will gladly change my opinion, all the more to have Fausto on board the postform project. It would if anything boost the idea to have intelligent interlocutors like himself (and I say this in the full knowledge that we still have much on which to disagree) on board.
The team is growing. Until now Pierre, Antoine, Gybexi and David have shown their interest. I can finally remove Gakbu S from the list - he was just filling up space so I could experiment with a template for multiple contributors. It is true, the blogosphere is still small when it comes to talking politics. It is also true that such projects rarely survive. I am banking on the interactivity, the simplicity of the rules and the non-exclusivity and openness of the project in the hope that it will go further.
Apart from beginning the politics it will also be another example that the old lie - that it is sweet and right to listen to what the big parties have to say all the time - is no longer valid. That is why I am hoping that postform can be, at least, a good example of the shape of posts to come.
So there you are. In all honesty... no longer will we tell with such high zest...
Post Scriptum: (and oh... a little aside for Maltagirl... I think Wilfred Owen rocks... his poems are incredible... you can learn to love them even with the most boring of teachers.... he is also a candidate for the Bollettino Hall of Fame... he died on the 4th November 1918 .... the Armistice was signed on the 11th November (a great day) )
