Random Thoughts for 8th July 2012

This is the latest in my series of Random Thoughts posts with links, things found on the web and other stuf that has occured to me between 4th July and 8th July (published a little late):

What to make of the new Electoral Reform Society rules?

Mark Pack says what I would have said about the changes to the rules that the Electoral Reform Society is run by, if I had bothered to go into the details and then chosen to blog about it. However, I am pleased that one of the things that the new broom in the ERS are doing is reviewing such governance issues. It will stand them in good stead.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy Radio Show LIVE!

My other recent theatrical outing was this. Slightly unbalanced in that it dealt with events of the first original radio show in the first half, leaving all the other shows to fit into the second. Which meant that half felt rather..er..random. But given that it was more celebration than performance it didn’t matter. Great fun. You have to like a show in which the sound effect guys are as much a part of the performance as the actors.
