Clearing the Cache: Blog Action Day, But Look Who's (No Longer) AWOL [UPDATED]
BY Micah L. Sifry | Thursday, October 15 2009
- Today is Blog Action Day, and it looks like a huge number--nearly 10,000--have signed up to post on climate action issues.
- Most notable in that list, beyond all the usual enviro sites: Prime Minister Gordon Brown's blog, and the official Google blog.
- Notably missing from that list (at least as of midday): The White House blog and the Environmental Protection Agency's blog. UPDATE: The White House blog joins in with a post this evening from Heather Zichal, Deputy Assistant to the President for Energy and Climate Change, at 6:36pm. Better late than never. But the EPA is still AWOL.
- Our pal Todd Ziegler of the Bivings Group offers his detailed critique of the new GOP.com site. It's good, bad and ugly.
- How to follow GOP insiders on Twitter live, from TalkingPointsMemo. (h/t TechRepublican.com)
- Or just subscribe to Patrick Ruffini's "Republican political operatives" Twillist group.
- The Pirate Party may be taking off in Europe (see Antoni Gutierrez-Rubi's report), but here in the U.S. its putative leaders are couchsurfing.
- Sunlight Labs offers its ideas on redesigning the FCC's ancient website. The FCC tweets back, calling the redesign "approachable."
