What's a blogger

I occasionally visit the Online Parliamentarian blog, whose author is trying to get accreditation to the Scottish Parliament. It was depressingly predictable to hear that a senior media officer at the parliament was not only unwilling to recommend accreditation but didn't even know what a blog was!

It does strike me that this is strongly suggestive that the officer concerned is not actually competent to do their job when the biggest development in media in the last 25 years (if not longer) is a mystery to them. Anyway, readers may like to go over and cheer Mr Online up - he sounds a bit fed up.
