Topic: free SAM content
Our material is for open use and is meant to be borrowed, recycled and re-used. It's free, and no legal obligation to make an attribution (though we do appreciate the acknowledgement having learned the concept of 'authority' as per technorati blog bible). It really is free, and that's the owner and editor speaking, Tom McLoughlin solicitor in New South Wales, Australia.
The trend in daily reads seems to be increasing with 2,423 hits on some days, and 34,255 per month up from 2,800 when we started in January 2007 in grovelling form. We continue to note our language and/or content turning up either as a direct or indirect echo or perhaps parallel evolution in some high profile columnist articles, some distinctly centre left, and on the right too.
SAM won't embarrass them by mentioning whom. Anyway we are confident enough to say it shouldn't be embarrassing - with 2 university qualifications and 15 years of public interest ngo politics behind the editor, all but teetotal for 2 years and caffeine free these days our synapses are bubbling along as a consequence.
