The House of Lords at Lords of the Blog are Online Starting Today March 17, 2008

You have to hand it to the highly traditional House of Lords and their new experimental and collaborative (nine) Lords of the Blog, a pilot project being managed by the Hansard Society.

Lords of the Blog went online March 17, 2008, confirming that blogging is no longer an avantgarde avocation but has truly entered the professional mainstream bigtime. It is also quite a kudo to WordPress, whose blog format K2 the Lords are using.

In true English style the Lords do not storm the blogosphere with a frumpy presentation that one might otherwise have expected, but begin their experimental contact to the public with a clean, modern face and a great deal of humour, also facing head-on such topics as “Lords reform”.

This is definitely a very positive addition to the blogging world and to the world in general.
