I find this fascinating. Congressman Ed Markey's avatar spoke at a conference in Bali. In addition to wondering why anyone wouldn't want to go to Bali, I'm curious to see if there will be more of this in the political world or if it's just a flash in the pan. The presidential candidates have all embraced the internet in varying degress of savviness, but most of the politicians in D.C. are dinosaurs who may have web sites they had someone create and run for them, but wouldn't know an e-mail if it jumped out at them. Some discussion on green and political blogs, but at this point no big buzz.
