PING TEST

PING TEST

In typical tek support terminology, doing a PING test, is testing the reachability of an IP network. Testing wether a computer is connected or not to a network. Interestingly enough, the term “Ping” originates from the sound of sonar in submarines.

But for our purpose, as political militants, or simply as responsible and civic-minded citizens, we can go and do a “ping test” on our governments. Test the reachability of our elected officials. In an effort to determine whether the communication connection between government and the electorate is active, or whether it’s completly dead.
