Today I was a speaker at 7 Milbank, just across the street from Parliament, where the topic was blogging in the public and corporate sectors.  The speakers were Richard Allan MP, who spoke on ‘e-Democracy in Parliament’, Tom Steinberg of MySociety who spoke on ‘e-Innovations in the public sector’, myself who spoke on ‘blogging in the corporate sector’ and Isobel Harding, who spoke about ‘civic leadership blogs in the US’ and also about the ReadMyDay project.

I was quite impressed by the speakers, all of whom grasped that what sets blogs apart from ‘internet version 1.0’ is the network effect of the blogosphere.  Tom Steinberg repeated what has been our drum beat for quite some time regarding the importance of the seemingly trivial permalink and the emergent effect they produce.

It was nice not to be the lone voice crying in the wilderness on that issue for once smile
