Overview of book
Freedom of speech is alive and well in the blogosphere, but at what price? One Nation Under Blog explores the enormous significance and potential impact of Web logs on every aspect of our lives. From our children's comments on MySpace, to an employee's discussion of internal corporate issues, to fabricated statements about a presidential candidate--blogs can change lives forever with the click of a mouse. Imagine how history might have been altered if blogging had been available and used to target presidents like George Washington, John F. Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson. Wallace shares his first-hand experience with the impact of blogs while Mayor of Sugar Land, Texas, Homeland Security Advisory Council appointee and contributor to a nationally recognized Internet safety program. One Nation Under Blog introduces an intense discussion on how blogs affect our sense of security and the need for a code of conduct among bloggers for future generations.
