Chitchat with Mark Latham – he's going to take over the world!

Posted by: | June 7, 2007 | Comments Off on Chitchat with Mark Latham – he's going to take over the world!

Last year, the ex-wall street strategist, UBC alum, and ex-professor Mark Latham walked into an AMS council meeting waving around 8 thousand dollars. He wanted to use the AMS as the first testing ground for his media revolution. The result was Voter Funded Media, the contest that this blog was created for. For those of […]

The people have spoken. I have a really really good feeling about the execs next year. In particular, I think with Sarah Naiman’s energy for student life and Brittany Tyson’s keen and savvy mind the two can work very well together in working to engage the students. The “Video screen idea” from Sarah Naiman which […]

So it’s the day after. I haven’t checked my e-mail, and yet I’m updating this blog. Wow. I’m particularly happy w/ the results – every candidate for whom I voted ended up winning, which pleases me. And a big huge congrats to Darren Peets, who deserves his BoG seat more than anybody who’s held the […]

The Thank-You Post

We’ll both have withdrawal symptoms and we hope you’ll still read and interact with our discussion posts below. Play with them! We’ll probably reply. Actually, I’m sure we will. And stay tuned for Elections Results tonight! We’ll come back then, with commentary, of course. And photos. End Transmissions. This is goodbye, because the election is […]

One more thing

Don’t forget about the post below. We want your thoughts. But there’s another important question, too. Which is how ought this blog to live on? I think there’s a demand for some AMS/student/UBC blog out there. Now Gina and I are graduating, but would be happy to help out anybody who wants to keep a […]

So, we can’t publish tomorrow. And elections are up. So, this post is designed to have a great deal to chew on in our blogging absence.In short, a few ideas requiring bylaw reforms have been floated this election. If we can amend bylaws for one of them…. why not all? To begin: AMS Fees Linked […]

Campaign Wind up

Today I saw Jeff Friedrich standing on the North Side of the SUB flyering, all by himself. I’m really curious to see what the voter turnout is going to be. I would not be surprised if it were lower than most years, because of the quiet campaigns which I’ve bitched about many times before. Needless […]

My computer has unceremoniously fried itself. This angers me. It also means my ability to respond to comments instantaneously is greatly reduced, as is my ability to create a thoughtful, well-reasoned post. So, in the style of the “real” media, I present not-quite-formed thoughts, in short, digestible sentence form! 1) I’ll bet The Thunderbird didn’t […]

Inkless Insiders

Without a doubt, my favorite political journo is the intrepid Paul Wells; I get downright giddy when he posts about University affairs, which he does with some regularity. Today’s post is noteworthy. It explains quite succinctly why tuition reduction is a profoundly misguided way to increase access, and how lower tuition actually keeps the under-privileged […]
