FCC Boss Chairman Powell started his weblog

Read today in Wired News (thanks Marco !): “WASHINGTON — U.S. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Michael Powell has started his own Web log to reach out to the high-tech community and bypass the scores of Washington lobbyists who typically skulk around his office.

Powell, who wants to avoid regulating new technologies like Web-based telephone service for fear of stifling innovation, said he started the blog to encourage the high-tech industry to get involved because its past practice of flying under the radar to avoid regulations would no longer work. “
