CTLP Bloggers at Key Issues Forum

(Article by Genghis Conn, reposted from Connecticut Local Politics. Great job, folks!)

CGG and I headed to Hartford today for the Courant’s Key Issues forum about blogging. Also attending were Colin McEnroe, Matt Stoller of MyDD and Tim Tagaris of the Lamont campaign.

It was a lively discussion. Matt Stoller, Colin and I argued about civility and polarization in politics, both CGG and I spoke about the impact that Connecticut’s blogs have had on races in state, and I took time to plug TownBlogs.

CTBlogger has audio of the forum. How did he do this without actually being there? It is a mystery.

Christine Stuart of CT News Junkie was there, and filed this report. Good stuff! You can also see some video tonight if you go to Fox 61’s website.

I had a blast at this event. It was great to get a chance to talk about blogging with such a distinguished group of panelists, and to interact with the audience at the forum. Oh, and if anyone is wondering, the Lieberman people did in fact submit a question about ethics in blogging. My awesome wife found that one out.
