Blog to Congress

(updated 6 Dec 2005: fixed HTML mistakes in the Blosxom flavour, changed link to point to new version. Thanks to Michal Migurski for the HTML sanity check.

More "blog to Congress" discussion from, Ruby Sinreich, and Doc Searls. Are we a Movement yet?)

Original date: Wed, 14 Jul 2004

It's a familiar complaint. "You web weenies blog until your hands fall off from carpal tunnel syndrome, but when it's time to write a letter to Congress, you don't have the time or you're all elbows with the word processor."

Well, it's time to stop that sorry situation right now. Here's a Blosxom flavour to turn any Blosxom entry into a letter to the appropriate member of Congress. Preview, print, and stick it in an envelope. Thank you.

By the way, the digital TV transition, combined with the DMCA, threatens to extinguish political free speech as we know it. Have a nice day.
