As the election in the UK approaches, I think it’s time to tell the people chasing our votes that actually we do understand the issues around digital liberty and we think it’s time for them to listen to us as well as the lobbyists. After all, we have votes and the lobbyists don’t.
I’ve designed the simple logo you see to the left. It’s meant to capture the idea that I’m a geek with a vote. During the election season, I intend to wear a badge with this logo, or at some events a t-shirt. I’d be delighted if other people did the same, and/or used the image online.
I’ve created an online store with a range of products carrying the logo so that it’s easy to get hold of them, but if you would prefer to make your own materials I’m placing the logo as close to the public domain as possible by licensing it under the new CC-Zero license.
