Digital Ambassador

David Jacobson, the U.S. Ambassador to Canada, blogs !

It's actually not a bad read in a travelogue, day-in-the life sort of way. He's not letting any state secrets or NAFTA negotiating tactics away.

Unlike blogs from some other political officials I've stumbled across in the past: a) it gets updated; b) it doesn't sound like a 23 year old staffer ghost-writes it; c) it doesn't sound like it's been drafted by a committee of communications consultants.

Jacobson's digital regime also includes a folksy flickr page and a Facebook page.

I wonder if Ambassador Doer will embrace anything like that while he's in office ?!
