New TV News Channel and VideoBlogging
BoingBoing takes note of the increasing visibility of the new TV news channel -- by and for young adults (great way to save on wages and health insurance, eh, guys?) -- being put together by Al Gore and Joel Hyatt. Video blogging is going to be a core competency, it would seem.

Understanding the New Political/Media Sphere
In a column on Forbes.com entitled "Bloggers and Blinders," Steve McGookin looks at We the Media in the political context.

C-Span Airing Internet Panel
At last week's Progress & Freedom Foundation Aspen meeting I did a panel with James Taranto, who writes the Wall Street Journal's OpinionJournal.com "Best of the Web" blog. The topic was how political operatives are using the Internet, and how regular folks can do the same in their political activities. As I said in the book, I don't agree with him politically, for the most part, but he does write with real style (and is a thoughtful, nice guy in person).
I don't think there's a file of our talk on the Web, but here's the schedule on the C-Span site. Let me know if you see it archived anywhere and I'll point to it. Thanks.
UPDATE: Argghh, they spelled my name wrong on the screen. That's unfortunate.
