I see that the US Department of Homeland Security has launched a blog. The initial efforts appear to be very formal and official, more like a series of press releases, in contrast to the more natural, imaginative and reader-oriented style of the excellent (though sporadic) postings on the Transportation Security Administration blog. So far the Homeland Security blog has not attracted many comments. But it’s early days yet. Let’s hope that it evolves into a more insightful communications channel that’s sufficiently streetwise to be termed a blog.
