This morning’s Note opens with the following lede:
“We finally figured out why superscribe Ron Fournier left the Associated Press. We can’t say as much as we know, but we can say this: Fournier, who just got done writing a bipartisan book about the importance of community building in the Internet Age, has teamed up with political strategists from both sides of the fence and leaders from the Internet industry to create the next big thing in communications and community. It will all be clear to the world in the next 24 hours. Stay tuned.”
Ron Fournier is the author of Applebee’s America, a book about the Internet as a tool for Government-to-Citizen dialog.
Politics is notoriously behind the times with regard to technology, I’m anxious to see whether this is a real development, or more of the same.
