Oscar Swartz nominated to Top 10 Who Are Changing the Internet
Last year I nominated Swedish foreign minister Carl Bildt to Politics Online's award "Top 10 Who Are Changing the Internet and politics" for his blog.
This year I chose to nominate Oscar Swartz, who was one of the frontmen of the blog quake that almost managed to defeat the Swedish government. I know that he was not alone, and I would have liked to nominate the entire Swedish blogsphere, but it was sadly not possible. But I guess Oscar is a worthy representative.
