Stuff I've seen April 5th through April 6th

Posted on 8th April 2009 by

These are my links for April 5th through April 6th:

  • Walkit.com gets a redesign. – Need I say more!
  • Government Needs Smart-sourcing, Not Crowdsourcing | techPresident – Clay Shirky, while in London last month promoting the release of Here Comes Everybody in paperback, said the following: “All the rhetoric, including – I’m embarrassed to say – some of mine, has assumed in the past that democratic legitimation is itself enough to regard aggregate public opinion [online] as being clearly binding on the government. I’ve changed my mind.”
  • G20: Tom Watson MP – Watch the short youtube film from Lloyd davis where Tom Watson explains why the G20 matters and why it’s important that bloggers were given access to the conference.

When a blogger asks a Prime Minister a question at a summit has something interesting happened?

It’s a simple question, I’m trying to figure out if it has a simple answer. One of my fellow g20voice bloggers Richard Murphy knows his stuff and consciously uses his blog to campaign for reform of Tax Havens. Is it interesting or important that a blogger like Richard gets to ask questions at a summit like G20. Has anything changed?
