Not long ago Vancouver's finest municipal blogger Frances Bula wondered why we didn't have much going on that pertained to provincial politics in the bloggodome.
And while I tried to argue that we did, in fact, kinda/sorta have such a provincial scene happening even I had to concede that we were essentially playing to a niche audience made up of our own small circle of friends and on-line uncles that we were doing our best to influence.
You know, kind of like protest folk-rock for the fringe-jacket set after Dylan went electric just before The Buffalo Springfield hit the bigtime.
But all that seems to have changed over the last few months.
Which is interesting, especially given the disappointing way the BasiVirk trial ended for those of us that want the the entire truth to come out.
Why interesting, you may be asking?
Well, if you think about the way Laila Yuile's Sea-To-Sky 'Shadow Toll' expose was whipped around the provincial bloggodome and has been very extensively commented upon in the last 18 hours or so, you can see that something really is happening here.
And while what it is may not be exactly clear, it is is clear that people really are starting to pay serious attention.
And for me the real kicker here is that we don't seem to need the proMedia's wurlitzer to start cranking for that to happen.
Interesting that, eh?
Not to mention potentially very powerful.
