Great article on technology and civic life

Check out this article by Matt Leighninger, author of "The Next Form of Democracy."
He talks about the potential that bloggers have to reshape the relationship between citizens and government and to have a real impact on local communities. How do we connect online talk and information to real action and change? Matt has some good ideas about this, and his four principles really speak to what the e-state symposium was all about. I hope we can continue to move the e-state work forward in a way that combines the best of face to face dialogue with online tools. I can't wait to see how this continues to unfold.
