The article I referred to a few weeks ago is now out, by Joanna Weiss at the Boston Globe. Titled Blogs shake the political discourse, it’s a nice overview of the impact that blogs are having on the presidential campaign.
The article takes a local focus — Oliver Willis (Dedham), and Jock Gill (Medford) are both featured prominently. And she quotes me as well, though she didn’t add my local connection — I went to Acton-Boxboro High School.
And Ron Schmidt, a reader of this blog who was contacted by Joanna, is quoted here:
Ron Schmidt, a Dean supporter from Minnesota, said blogs give him ammunition for water cooler chat. ‘‘I work on people at the bus stop and work,’‘ he wrote in an e-mail to the Globe. ‘‘I have the information, and that’s what the blogs have given me … the POWER.’‘
