Taxman and the power of blogs

In 1966 the Beatles released the album “Revolver”. The first song “Taxman” told everybody what they thought of the UK Tax system. I was listening to it earlier and it made me think that kind of voice wasn’t available to many back then.

Today we have the power of the collected voice of the Internet and anybody can make a statement which can potentially ripple around the world in minutes. It can be picked up and echoed through any medium, allowing companies or governments to hear the public opinion.

No great revelation, but sometimes it’s good to take a step back and appreciate the amazing capabilities an open Internet has.
