So David Eaves is on my blog-writing radar since I got on his blog as part of the “Rat Pack of public service sector renewal . If you ask me, I think a more fitting name for this group of non-conventionalists is “Rant pack” (see what I did there? It’s punny) considering how 6 out of 7 of us blog (except for Mr. Kearney of the Government of Canada wiki GCPEDIA) .

So I pulled this blog posting out of my drafts and dusted it off. I wrote most of this a while ago after reading David Eaves’ blog post “why the government of canada needs bloggers“. (Warning to David: “cover your eyes…NOW!”)

I have calculated how the critical mass for blogs in the public service is 13 blogs.

Blogging is like crowdsurfing; it isnt for everyone, but anyone can do it, people support you, but you can fall, and its nice to have a crowd.

Blogging is like crowdsurfing. It isn't for everyone, but anyone can do it. You need people to support you, but you can fall on your ass big time. You can do it with a small group, but it's nice to have a big crowd.
