Re-posted from archive of infinite ideas machine 2004: [LINKS UNCHECKED]
A belated reference to Mark Simpkins’ excellent consultationprocess blog, which has taken the Home Office’s consultation document [553 KB PDF file] on the proposed ID Card (and National Identity Register) legislation and MoveableTyped it.
Being able to comment on, link directly to paragraphs and use trackback introduces a whole new dimension to the document – and begs the question why the Government, if it is so interested in ‘consultation’ and enamoured of e-Everything, has not adopted this approach. It certainly can’t be the cost, if a private individual (with some help from a few friends) has been able to do it!
The deadline for responses is 20th July, so check it out online then send your feedback and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the words ‘consultation response’ in the subject title. Or write to:
