Influence of Bloggers in the Obama Transition

Still wondering if bloggers are influential in public policy debates?  The seemingly casual lead in this morning’s headline post on DailyKos, is actually indicative a seismic shift in the role of blogs in this new world.

 “A few days ago some of us science-y bloggers were invited on a conference call with the Obama energy and environmental transition team. It was hopeful -- and freaking weird to be taken seriously by a White House team of any kind!”

Time will tell if the Obama Administration will use bloggers to carry their message, listen to their input or engage in a real dialogue.
