Well, it had to happen. With the onset of a full-time PhD, I've started a new blog to keep track of all the "technology + politics" stuff that would otherwise go on here. Signal to noise, and all that. It should also tie in neatly (or overlap way too much, we'll see) with Into the Machine, which deals with more of the "top-down" use of technology, rather than bottom-up deliberation etc etc.
Anyway, go check it at Sphereless, add it to your RSS and all that.
