Chester City Council has launched a new website to enable its 60 councillors to each have their own blog. And while initially it may seem like their blogs are records of meetings, and clubs attended – I guess things should get more interesting especially if they manage to push the idea of interactive governance. eGov has an article on this.
I know many of us may be very cynical about what a blog can do. But it’s dialogue made easy – and its archiving of public dialogue. Both are of crucial importance. Hhmm…. Now think of Laloo with a blog. It’d probably have striking visuals of dung cakes as emoticons!
