Others have pondered whether one of the side effects of the blogging phenomena will be a challenge to traditional politics. I hope so. At times, it feels like the physical world is out of sync. Catching up on some reading today, I stumbled across a quote that neatly summed up what we could/should be doing…

“In the Wiki world, everyone has access to the same knowledge. Many people
no longer feel that experts have additional authority. If knowledge is
power, then today everyone has enormous power. What we need to do is get
all of the people to take responsibility for the knowledge that we all possess.”
