Time to Lego 

Starling Hunter, a professor based in the , has compiled a list of the countries Danish goods on his blog—but notes that there are coming to ’s rescue:

A counter-boycoot [sic] has begun in the designed to encourage the sales of goods, presumably to help Danish make up for lost revenues from sales in countries. A search on the term “‘Buy Danish’ + boycott” in returns almost 54,00[0] hits. Among the top results is End the Boycott which carries a list of Danish products, a list of other campaigns and other facts about Denmark.

   So while the are taking place, it’s over to , netizens and some members of the running a campaign. It doesn’t appear to have any official connection to Denmark, HRH Crown , or any .
   It might not save Danish companies from losing overall, but like all things in the online world, it represents voices. voting not with dollars, but with wishes and words.
   I might not like what did, but I don’t think a blanket banning of Danish goods gets at the right people. It only causes resentment. Evidently, there are enough people who feel the same way.
   I would only support a ban on goods if the company itself had wronged and remained unapologetic—which also ties in to giving a proper voice. And a lot of Danish companies have done right by our world—and a -less world would suck.

Entries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
   With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
