From: David Farrar For : The Editor (for publication) Subj: Govt Website Not Updated As much as I hate to defend the Government, in this case the criticism of one of their websites being out of date is misplaced. If one looks at the home page of www.executive.govt.nz it specifically says this site is now an archive site and the up to date cabinet website is at www.beehive.govt.nz. As horrifying a thought as it is, but Jim Anderton will be Deputy PM for life on the Executive site as it is just an archive! Aardvark RespondsHit Reload For Latest Comments
Hmm.. what about all those folks who come to those pages via a search-engine and don't realise that they're simply an archive? How many school-kids will lose marks on their homework after thinking they've found some up-to-date info? Neither the URL nor any item on the pages linked to in today's column indicate that the data is purely historical in nature. Maybe someone could address that soon? :-)
