As I have a keen interest in greater political transparency and openness (some have even criticised me for being ‘obsessed’ about it), I have applied to become a member of the Sunlight Centre for Open Politics.
They were allowing anyone to sign up and have they way with their little corner or Ning! last Friday/Saturday (which led to my being spammed courtesy of a ‘helpful’ sock-puppeteer who will be dealt with in due course). Now, new members need to be approved by administrators.
And here is where it (already) gets interesting…
I have applied for membership under my real name and and not a pseudonym, even though I know that they operate out of the same office as Paul Staines and my name alone is likely to count against me if there is an undeclared political alliance at work.
Which way will they jump and why?
I’ll let you know when a decision is made…
