Jerry Brown: Blogger

So I finally had an opportunity to meet with Jerry Brown and I really liked him. He was very personable and interested in getting better connected with the electorate. One immediate offshoot -- Jerry is now blogging which I think is great. He has also asked for a set of recommendation to improve his web site.

As we talked about the Internet and the web I gave Jerry the standard pitch about Cluetrain and pushed an idea that Doc Searls and I had discussed -- the networked electorate. Jerry got it and wants to explore how he could get both elected and appointed officials in Oakland blogging. Now that would be cool.
