Gordon Brown’s web presence: whither the Tech Prime Minister?

May 30, 2007

I just searched a bit more for Gordon Brown stuff (see previous post), and it turns out he has his own YouTube channel. That I didn’t know about it, despite being subscribed to the Labour Party YouTube channel, and searching YouTube for Brown, tells me his web team are not doing their job. It has 16 subscribers.

I found it via his own site, Gordon Brown for Britain, which is itself only fifth in a Google search for his name. The profile of his site and his YouTube channel could easily be raised, and should be if his staff want to serve the next Prime Minister well. The site tries, but leaves much room for improvement. The “moblog” links to a somewhat half-hearted flickr account, which nevertheless has some potential when used with Google maps to “Follow Gordon“. The “Team Blog” is written by Oona King, and hasn’t been updated for a week.

Mr Brown, we want more. Show us you will be the first Tech President Prime Minister.
