Gary Hart Joins the Blogosphere. Former Senator Gary Hart (D-Colo.) has started a blog. He joins former Vermont Governor Howard Dean as a 2004 presidential candidate to embrace this technology. [via politicalwire.com] [Political Parrhesia]
Very interesting. Unlike Dean’s blog (which is maintained by the campaign and not by Governor Dean himself), this blog appears to be written directly by Hart.
Blogs are reaching a remarkable arc: many credit 9/11 as the original push, with this war receiving a considerable amount of attention for the fact that everyone – citizens, journalists, soldiers – seem to be blogging it.
My prediction – the 2004 presidential election will be the next watershed event for blogs.
