For you Aussies that want to hear more about why blogging is not as popular among politicians and organizations down under as it is in the US; I suggest you pay Duncan Riley’s blog a visit. Duncan writes an opinionated article on his concerns about the state of blogging and the use of Web 2.0 tools in Australia after attending the Media Connect Influence Conference. He offers an interesting reflection on the topic.
I also suggest you pay Paull Young’s blog a visit. He offers more links on this topic.
