Bloggers take over the world

This is a post specifically for bloggers in Aotearoa New Zealand.  I am researching an article at the moment about the influence the blogosphere has on public policy – and I’d love to hear from anyone interested, on or off the record.

I’m especially interested in whether there are examples of issues taken up by the blogosphere which have influenced the development of policy – via the media, via influence on public opinion directly, via influence on government or policy makers directly.

It may turn out we have no influence – that would still make a story – I have no predetermined ideas, so give me a yell if you’re interested or have anything to add. 

I will also be contacting some bloggers in person at some stage. 

Look forward to hearing from you.
