Scoop S.O.S. Feedback: Angelic Encouragement

Yet more Scoop feedback…

to SCOOP AUDIENCE,

I write as an Angelic Sustaining Subscriber (yoh!) and want to endorse the notion of simply giving money to Scoop as a contribution to open democracy in New Zealand. Scoop is an important part of my life and business, I have many staff who use Scoop often several times a day, we pay $200 per month for email services (cheap), buy advertising (very effective for community building, exposure, awareness, influence), send Scoop material for publishing (very helpful thanks)...we have funded special projects...

I work in the corporate sector where real revenue is earned and am very happy to reciprocate Scoop's initiative by giving back. People and organisations who use Scoop should contribute. The Web is embryonic, traditional revenue models are immature; corporates are generally clueless when it comes to using the web, they pontificate over small budget promotions, angst over committing a few bucks, advertising agencies are often just as clueless about the web and wait for some traditional media metric to pop up into their tarp-screen before being confident about committing a toe in the water...

SCOOP is cool, being associated with Scoop (optimistic, raffish, open source) makes you connected to a really interesting ecosystem of nz society and decision-making...

I hope that my message will unlock the chastity belts of your heavy-users and that they may be encouraged to put their money (small bucks really) where their mouses are and subscribe, sustain, donate and get into the groove.

SCOOP is a brilliant exposition of an original idea, I trust the Scoop team and love what they do.

Open your wallets like I have, mandarins, apparatchiks, activists, raiders, moguls, boffins, hounds and eagles.

PURPLE HEART

The US Supreme Court has been frantically busy of late, striking down law and legislation with an almost crazed, ideological enthusiasm. Gun laws have been invalidated; Roe v Wade and constitutional abortion rights, confined to history. And now, the Environmental Protection Agency has been clipped of its powers in a 6-3 decision.
The June 30 decision of West Virginia v Environmental Protection Agency was something of a shadow boxing act... More>>

On 19 June the Sunday Star Times published my column on the relationship between the Labour government’s stewardship of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system and the outcome of the next general election expected to be around September-October 2023: Is the health system an electoral sword of Damocles for Labour...

The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... More>>
