I've been following Chris Nolan's Politics from Left to Right for a few months now. She's one of the most consistently reasonable (a quality for which weblogging is not well-known) and well-informed (at which weblogging does somewhat better) writers on technology and politics I've found. That URL up there is for her EWeek column wrapping up the San Francisco weblogging regulation story.

Shouldn't webloggers be proud they have enough political influence that the regulations which apply to big-league political campaigning are now seen as needing to apply to political weblogs?
