Tom Watson was the first MP to start blogging and he is still going here. He’s carried a link on his blog to the ColaLife Campaign since the very early days and we follow each other on Twitter. So, in a way, I feel I know him pretty well but we’ve only met fleetingly twice and this is the only decent conversation we’ve ever had! Thanks Tom.
Tom is Minister for Transformational Government at the Cabinet Office which is a long way of saying that he leads on the efforts to rationalise the Government’s web presence. He is one of the handful of MPs who understand Web 2.0.
