A while back, I spoke at an interesting program on the politics and ethics of blogging at the Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs organized by well known Japan hand Devin Stewart who runs the program and blog titled Policy Innovations.
I have been meaning to post this short video clip for a while but have been short on time. I think it captures quite a bit of my objectives and design in blogging. Much of it has to do with the particular circumstances of the John Bolton US Ambassador to the UN confirmation battle — but I think that there are many replicable aspects of that experience that can be used in other worthwhile political and policy skirmishes.
