Labourlist.org goes live
The new Labourlist.org website went live over the weekend.
It's taken a while to get there - Derek Draper who is the editor was discussing the project with Labour bloggers back in the summer when the political context was a very different one of imminent meltdown.
I think it's going to be a very important resource for Labour activists in the run-up to the election.
The critical thing to note is that it won't just be a multi-writer blog like LabourHome - as the header on the webpage says it will be the home of "an independent grassroots e-network" - where you can sign-up to get email alerts and daily briefings sent to your inbox. That provides quite a powerful tool for keeping Labour supporters updated with the latest political developments by email. That's why the name is not "Laboursite" or "Labournet" but "Labourlist" as in email list.
The Guardian has picked up on my involvement saying I am a "respected Labour blogger". I think this must be a typo - surely it should read "detested Labour blogger"?
Anyone got any suggested on what my first post on Labourlist should be about?
