This blog is officially open! The book will be published late February 2006 in the US, and mid-April 2006 in Europe, but I thought I'd make an early start. I'll be using this as a place to gather together materials that illustrate and augment the themes and issues covered in the book. The idea is that it will be a dynamic compendium of links, snippets, and commentary. Hopefully it will add to your enjoyment of the book - and my courses, if you're unlucky enough to be taking them! In the fast-moving sphere of Internet politics, blogging seems to me to be by far the best way for an author to keep things up to date.
