Personal Democracy Forum

It’s the final day of PdF2008 "Rebooting the System" — the cross-partisan conference examining how Internet trends and technology are reinventing the political process. Here’s a handy link to the live videostream.


I’ll be speaking on a panel this afternoon on local blogging with a broad range of folks including moderator Alex Hunsucker of Eventful.com, Isabel Santa of the Sam Adams Alliance, Ed Cone of EdCone.com and Lisa Sabater of Culture Kitchen and Daily Gotham.


One of the questions we’ve been asked to include in our remarks is:

Why are some local political blogs having an impact, and others not so much?

What say you, Colorado Independent readers? What drives you to (or away from) a site?
