As you are all probably aware, we have a new Clerk of the Privy Council. This news (and a reminder tweet from @Jodilynne3) sparked the idea of doing something to commemorate the occasion, like visualizing the tweets that have originated from @WayneWouters or @WayneGWouters.
While considering different ways of doing this visualization, I ran into the @NickCharney piece on @cpsrenewal regarding interchanges in the government, which asks “Are public servants interchangeable?”, and that got me thinking in a different direction.
“In other words, does this cultural homogeneity consistency lend itself more readily to the question of whether or not public servants interchangeable, rather than the question of whether or not they ought to go on interchange?”
Would a generic Clerk account make it, the conversations and thoughts expressed, and the individual using that account ‘interchangeable’?
As for the visualization, that will be for another day, unless someone beats me to it.
