BLOGGING BY IMPORTANT PEOPLE….Let’s face it, even if Tony Blair does decide to write a blog during his next election, it’s going to be tedious as hell. And it won’t be him writing it anyway.

On the other hand, you can see presidential blogging right now. Well, former presidential blogging, as Jimmy Carter blogs his way across Africa. No hyperlinks or permalinks, though, and the title is the charmingly archaic “Web Log (Blog) Update.” Still, I’ll bet it really is him writing it.

And I shouldn’t make fun anyway. I recall that he wrote his memoirs in 1981 on a word processor, whereas I was still using a typewriter at that point. Of course, he had more money than me back then.
