We all have 24 hours in a day.
Our default commitments probably take up anything between 6 and 22 hours of our day. Eating, sleeping, spending time with the family/friends, daily chores, earning a living and depending on who we are and what we do; many other tasks (mundane and otherwise) which require our personal and undivided attention.
Of course, most if not all of us have no idea when we are going to die.
So what of volcanic ambition?
In this age of ours, the interaction of politics, society and technology has opened up a world of opportunity for anyone who can juggle their time and resources efficiently.
What lies in store for those of us who have embarked on this modern phenomenon of becoming an all-in-one soap box?
Can the boldly written word, a picture that cries out, an impassioned audio clip or that video which seeks to minimise the disconnect between the seemingly all-powerful, unaccountable polity and it's seemingly powerless, irresponsible public inspire positive change?
In short, will conscientious blogging lead to the end of tyranny?
