Blogging comes to Westminster?
Dave Winer & Co are gearing up to make sure that Blogging plays a full role in the next US Presidential election, by providing discussion and reporting channels which are not controlled by media or political gatekeepers. They call it “Citizen Blogging”. As I reported last December, two prominent Dutch politicians have Blogs. The Discussion Group VoxPolitics is now trying to encourage British MPs to Blog by running a seminar on the subject “Can Weblogs Change Politics?” on July 14 at 17.30 in Portcullis House (opposite Big Ben).
