New Media And Politics
The Senate Site left this insightful comment: "The Senate sees the advent of political blogging the same way we view storm clouds over the San Rafael. Rain on the watershed means flood in the canyons. Like the cleansing but extremely dangerous flash floods that rip through the slot canyons all over our state – new media is changing the way people understand and participate in self government. The issue is not whether the flood is coming – it is. And it is not whether or not we find the flood to be compatible with established norms and habits - it is not. The issue is how to enjoy the changing dynamic in a way that embraces the adventure of a new paradigm, while keeping safe the things we treasure from our past. "
