ALTHOUGH THERE ARE SOME EUROPEAN BLOGS HERE AND THERE, I haven’t run across many.
And it’s clear from my conversations with hundreds of people in France these last couple of days, very few Europeans know that blogs and blogging exist.
The NRC Handelsblad‘s DC Bureau Chief Marc Chavannes is one of the smartest foreign journalists and public intellectuals I have met, in or out of the Beltway. He is the Bureau Chief for the NRC Handelsblad and has launched his own “Electionblog.”
It is in Dutch — but look at it anyway. Andrew Sullivan‘s name pops up, as does mine. And there’s something about Dutch that seems nearly understandable even by the language-challenged.
I’m glad to see Marc Chavannes helping to introduce smart blogging to Europe.
