I’ve been on the hoof in London all day, so I’ve not had a lot of time to blog. At 6.30, I’ll be at the US Embassy for live webcast of a debate on the future of digital politics online.

Political representatives have as yet to make any significant use of the abounding technologies available. Projects like Councillor.info are designed to warm that space up, but it still requires greater curiousity and experiment, before we begin to see the kinds ot revolutionary turns now taking place in the States.
