Politics for the Facebook generation
May 29th, 2007

Paul Miller writes: David Miliband gave an interesting speech at a Google event which puts him firmly into the tiny group of politicians who ‘get’ what’s now happening with the internet.

Minister Miliband: “how the spirit of the age requires a new type of politics, and how the new tools of the age can help deliver economic and social change. The argument is simple. We need the distribution of power to match the dispersal of information. We need the coordination of action to match the nature of interdependence. And in both tasks the social, economic and technological relationships that mark the world of Web 2.0 need to be exported to the political realm
