The dog days of summer lay hard upon us now. The political discourse of Digiterra hangs tepidly as we move through a season of quietude. This leads to the silence of discourse upon many a forum and I most embassies. This can of course be a good thing for the development of nations and alliances but gives head to boredom and disquiet.
The Rosular Kingdom recognizes that this leads to a dull embassy and thus seeks to enliven ours by introducing a new monthly feature. Each month we shall provide the kernel of discussion on a particular question. What is the best………………..
This we seek to do because the great broad range of Digiterra contains the wisdom of a wide variety of thought, age and experience. There are always lists a plenty when a best of discussion ensues and we shall provide one each time to start the discussion. Sadly those list oft tend only to the current, popular of most well known. We are hoping however to engender the thoughtful gathering of those hidden gems or time past issues that have not seen the more recent light. We also know that not all Digiterran leaders hail form the same neither geographic nor cultural centre nor thus we shall be able to curry from others those joys that they may not yet be aware of. So we invite all to provide names, and reasons for their choices. If they choose to provide links we would be all the more blessed.
