Holy cow! Who’s that fine young fellow on CTV’s Power Play?

That’s right. They invited me to the national airwaves (or, cablewaves) today to talk about the BC NDP’s leadership questionnaire which asks candidates to disclose the usernames and passwords of their social media accounts. It only occurs to me now that, on top of everything I’ve said and written on the topic, the NDP party is asking candidates to violate the terms of use agreements (read: civil contracts) with social media service providers.

For your reference, Facebook‘s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities section 4 (Registration and Account Security) item 8 reads You will not share your password, (or in the case of developers, your secret key), let anyone else access your account, or do anything else that might jeopardize the security of your account.
