El Mat picked out this mention of Slugger on a Canadian government website that’s looking seriously at the applied use of blogging. It’s fairly old (in internet years), but it’s interesting to see governments taking an interest in the soft (talk) end of the net, as opposed to the hard techie end.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
