While I'm too young and green behind the ears to start my own memoirs, that doesn't mean I don't take interest when others write theirs. Brent Houghton started his own blog do tackle the demons of the past.

Liam Hogan, PhD student and former NOLS member from the University of Sydney, on the other hand just likes a challenge.

For those of you who don't know, I am a member of Australian Labor Students (ALS), a Labor Left student faction which split from the National Organisation of Labor Students (NOLS) at around the turn of the millennium. While there are various differences between the two factions, both are Labor Left factions, and there are significant similarities and concordances between the two (some of which aren't acknowledged enough).

With the National Union of Students National Conference coming up (14-19 December), the factional silly season is well underway. Liam is promising a feast, which, unrestrained by a word limit or other considerations, will include:
a serialised version of my history with the National Organisation of Labor Students. All the cynicism. All the ideals. Most of the dirt. Some of the hard details (at least as many as I can remember). None of the boring meeting procedural bits.
I will be keeping a close eye on Liam's blog, as I do the blogs of my factional comrades, colleagues, opponents and enemies.

I encourage others to do the same.

    ALS were formed in the 1997 split. They became NOLS Inc. at first then consolidated as ALS. 1997 is also the year in which the epithet 'Rats' was first used.
    The 2000 NOLS split had little to do with ALS--though they cheered it on, for obvious reasons.
    More history soon enough.
