One Giant Leap for the Blogosphere?
The 2007 Economics Report of the President is to be released this afternoon, and posted online here. Then at 4:30 p.m. EST, Ed Lazear, chairman of the Council of Economic Advisors, will discuss the report in a conference call with … bloggers. I don’t know whether the decision to do this was made before or after it was revealed that John Edwards’s bloggers are running wild; but it’s certainly an acknowledgment of how much political discourse — electoral, legislative, and otherwise — now takes place in the blogosphere.
Along those same lines, there’s a new site called Techpresident.com, a blog about political blogging. It claims to be non-partisan, but the quick glance I took reveals it to be pretty Demmy.
