It is a curious phenomenon when insiders in politics, business, or media take up blogging as an alternative way of doing PR. Do they think they will get a significant audience for their opinions, or is the name of their game simply to insure that their opinions get inserted in MSM stories on what's going on in the blogosphere, to create the impression that blogs are just an alternative medium for carrying the same reality as is promoted on tv and in print?
Anyway, if you spend any time in the Canadian blogosphere, you will have noticed the snow in the air. If you are interested in following the Canadian federal election campaign that has just gotten under way, here is a good site to find political blogs of various shapes and stripes. I expect to be getting out to help my local candidate, so you might see a little less from me here at YARGB the next while.
