In 5 years time the way people access family law services will be very different than it is today - because we will drive change in that area. If we kept our scope down to just providing chat rooms and a forum, then in 5 years time solicitors would be running things in the same way that they do now. We have to get involved in the service side to drive change in that area - it won't happen on its own.

What you say about Wikivorce creating change is interesting and I'm sure sincerely believed, but I would still find it deeply depressing if in 5 years time people were merely accessing family law services differently, while the services themselves, and certainly the family justice system, remained substantially unaltered. It's not a very ambitious or imaginative vision. I think many people might want to see much more radical change, and much more urgently.

Slow, reasoned, reasonable change has been advocated before, and sometimes it results in a slight earth tremor, and then the dust settles again for another decade or two. It's hard to believe, for example, that FNF is already older than many of the parents on this forum. How long are we prepared to wait? How many more generations of damaged children? In the mean time I see F4J is once again moving its slow thighs, www.fathers-4-justice.org/....

It started off quite well and reasoned and then you invented a new markup......, I think you meant www.fathers-4-justice.org/ , where a totally pointless glitzy "flash" video rolls round and round.

Flash: Steve Jobs wont support that crap on the iphone, HTML5 will render it redundant, Fathers4Justice behind the times and out of touch as per usual.
