Digital journey a learning curve

SEVEN months after embarking on our digital journey I've got to admit the learning curve continues to prove enlightening.

The volume and location of the Advocate's online readership continues to flourish but it's the passionate nature of the comments posted by such readers that has caught me by surprise.

It seems the shield of anonymity offered by the online world is like an invitation for some to wallow in their lives of regret and terminal despair and willingly blame pollies, councils and everyone else for everything that upsets their apple cart.

It is not a problem unique to the Advocate but common across an internet populated by aliases and pseudonyms.

Gone are the days it seems when people were proud to give their name to their beliefs. Instead those who do are now shot down by faceless and often uninformed character assassins.

If criticism is warranted, fair go, but real change is usually only ever achieved when an inclusive dialogue is generated that embraces constructive real alternatives.

As they say if you're not part of the solution you're more than likely to be part of the problem.
