Governor General Michaelle Jean a Blogger?

Shel Israel, one of the authors of Naked Conversations, has written a post about Government Blogging in which he mentions he was in Canada and had Canada's Governor General Michaelle Jean blogging!

I had a quick look at the GG website, and indeed found a new site called Citizen Voices: Breaking Down Solitudes on the domain. There is blogging, forums, news, and even chat with the GG herself! I hope to spend a little more time later checking the site, and perhaps even submitting an encouraging word or two.

Oct. 13/06 update: I have now posted a longer write-up over on here.

Thanks for the nice mention. I enjoy taking lots of credit, but your Governor Heneral did this all by herself. At least she did it with absolutely no contact with me in any way. I simply mentioned that it was happening and started while I was talking to government people in Ontario. The two incidents are not directly related.

Thank you for the clarification, Shel!
