Google Launches Public Policy Blog
The blog launched on Monday, but contains two months worth of previously internal-only postings. And it's chock full of YouTube videos, not only of the politicians passing through, but of Google execs testifying on Capital Hill.
"We're seeking to do public policy advocacy in a Googley way," wrote Andrew McLaughlin, Google's director of public policy and government affairs, in an introductory posting on Monday. "We want our users to be part of the effort, to know what we're saying and why, and to help us refine and improve our policy positions and advocacy strategies. With input and ideas from our users, we'll surely do a better job of fighting for our common interests."
