Infectious openness
David Weinberger on Culture

Global Voices. a site trying to encourage more awareness of what's going on in blogs outside of the US this morning aggregates some Iranian bloggers blogging a meeting with a reformist presidential candidate who writes his own Persian blog. The most complete account is here, and it's pretty durn fascinating. And this blogger says that it was the most open meeting with a candidate he's ever had. It's obviously a complex situation, but it seems likely that the openness of the blogosphere is raising an expectation of openness in the offline world as well.

And if that's happening in Iran, it for sure is happening inside of businesses everywhere the blogosphere touches.

Maybe Gil Scott Heron was right, 'The Revolution will not be Televised.' But perhaps it will be blogged.
