Following in the footsteps of the Department of Homeland Security, the State Department recently launched a blog called DipNote.
It is actually the best government blog I have seen to date.
After the Defense Department’s embarrassing attempt at a blog, and Homeland Security’s somewhat stilted Chertoff blog (which I still don’t think he writes), DipNote is a welcome change. It is collectively written by State employees around the globe who are experts in their given region. It is genuine. It is open. And it has lots of interesting content.
Overall, it has lots of promise. Well done.
