More spiv snouts in the trough as we go “Digital Canberra”

johnboy 16 December 2013 6

The latest Summary of Cabinet outcomes has an entry that might make you feel ill:

Digital Canberra

Cabinet agreed the Digital Canberra initiative as a major government priority, which aims to promote Canberra as city of digital opportunity, create digital networks and partnerships, accelerate the digital economy, build a city of innovation and connected communities, and support open government, citizen engagement and better services. The Triple Bottom Line Assessment for this initiative is available on the Chief Minister and Treasury Directorate Website.

Digital Canberra was developed based on industry and community feedback. A range of new digital initiatives will be announced and implemented in 2014, including a Digital Canberra website.

I studied symbolic logic at Uni many years ago, and it was fascinating stuff.

I reckon if I got out my dusty old books, and did a mathematical analysis of that first sentence it would come out as semantically null. In other words, apart from the repeated us of the word “digital”, it doesn’t actually contain any meaningful content at all.

There’s just something so banal and, well, government, about “Digital Canberra website”.

Surely someone must have a buzzword bingo after that?

The word digital has officially lost all meaning.

Well, it’s not every day you see so many words in a row that are utterly devoid of meaning. Ok, it is every day, but it’s no less depressing for it.

No doubt this is why Micky$haft is increasing its presence here. Or could it be the other way around?
