google_policy.pngThe new Google Public Policy Blog launched with two months of posts since it started internally. That’s a good way to start any blog: getting the blogging muscles working and getting in the groove of regular posting.
They promise “to do public policy advocacy in a Googley way,” asking users to be part of the effort, “to know what we’re saying and why, and to help us refine and improve our policy positions and advocacy strategies.”
The Google Public Policy Blog will cover issues like net neutrality, censorship, innovation regulation, immigration, R&D, national security, and trade, just to name a few. “All of the members of Google’s global public policy team will be contributing posts (or else – right, team?).” The list didn’t include ethics, which I hope will be covered since there are many ethics issues upon which Google will have impact.
And apparently, 2008 presidential candidates think they better fill Googlers in on their policies, because the blog includes videos of visits to the (California) Googleplex by Michael Bloomberg, (of course he’s running) Sen. John Edwards, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Sen. John McCain, and Gov. Bill Richardson.
