Well, well, well — looks like Joanna Weiss at the Boston Globe gets it:
[T]he most fervent blog proponents have been talking like apostles. Blogs, they predict, are harbingers of a new, interactive culture that will change the way democracy works, turning voters into active participants rather than passive consumers, limiting the traditional media’s role as gatekeeper, and giving the rank-and-file voter unparalleled influence.
Jock Gill, 58, a new-media consultant from Medford who is working for Dean and ran a fledgling e-mail campaign for Bill Clinton in 1992, said: ”This is just the tip of the change. We’re never going back to broadcast politics.”
This was a Page 1 story in the Globe, so apparently her editors get it too! [Seen on John Robb’s Weblog]Posted by Jason Lefkowitz at July 23, 2003
If you think anything I write here represents the opinions of anybody but myself, you need more help than I can give you. The opinions are all mine, folks. Nobody else's. ESPECIALLY not my employer's.
If that's too hard to understand... well, I'm sorry. There's only so much I can do. I'm not a therapist, and I'm not a miracle worker. (Unless you consider staying employed in this economy a miracle.) I wish I could help you work through your delusional belief that I'm speaking for anyone else but myself. Honestly, I do. But in the end, that's a monkey you'll have to get off your back on your own. Sorry.
