"Bloggers to have greater say in legislative debate"
Well, it's an encouraging headline, and, ahem, some of us would like to think so. Minister for Finance Lindsay Tanner dubbed here "the unofficial minister for blogging", and newly appointed Special Minister of State and Cabinet Secretary Senator Joe Ludwig are to announce "an exciting new initiative" at the Government 2.0 event on Monday. It will have to be quick- they have a fifteen minute spot on a very crowded speakers schedule .Where have all the others been during the freedom of information debate of the last few years?
