Firstly, if you're like me you've been following the net neutrality debate with concern. If you aren't familiar, net neutrality is in short the idea that the internet should be a level playing field, and that websites should be granted equal treatment by telecommunications companies. Many of those companies would like to create a tiered system, where websites must pay to allow users to access their content faster than others. Last week, the House rejected a Democrat sponsored amendment that attempted to preserve net neutrality.
Malloy hung around after the entry was posted to answer questions via the comments section. At present there are 56 comments in the thread, which I think is well worth the read. The first question asked was about the Senate race and would Malloy support whichever Democrat triumphed. Malloy responded with: Yes, I will support the winner of Senate primary, period.
It's wonderful to see more candidates venturing out onto other blogs, not run by their own staff. Destefano has posted two diaries now. The comments can be brutal but it's probably some of the most honest feedback candidates will receive. I expect we'll see even more candidates for various offices jumping on the blog bandwagon this summer.
