Who Says Blogs Aren’t Useful?
Tom has lived in Red Bank, New Jersey, since he bought a home there six years ago. He’s not an activist. In fact, he says he has no political affiliation at all. Tom’s just a guy like us, who works with and uses technology. He also cares about negotiations between the town of Red Bank, New Jersey, and Verizon Communications.
So he made a blog.
Why Tom Made the Blog
Tom made the Red Bank TV Blog because he believes that as part of the cable franchise agreement with the town of Red Bank, Verizon Communications should make three promises:
- Promise to provide A la carte cable service to Red Bank residents
- Promise not to object to a Red Bank Municipal WiFi network
- Promise to keep the internet a level playing field by upholding the tenets of Net Neutrality
Tom’s blog got my attention. I bet it got Verizon’s attention too. I hope this article helps it get the attention of Doc Searls, Jeff Pulver, Om Malik, and many others who want to know what local folks are doing. Tom’s blog is a great example of someone following through on what he believes.
Blogs used well are transparent to the purpose they are used for. No one will be wrapping fish in Tom’s blog tomorrow, or the next day for that matter. There’s so much to talk about in what Tom is doing.
I bet if you have a question about how it’s going, Tom will see it and answer it here.
