State Department Launches New Official Blog

State Department Launches New Official Blog


The State Department launched it’s new blog “Dipnote” yesterday. According to the welcoming entry, the title is an abbreviation of “diplomatic note,” which is a formal communication between an ambassador and a minister of a foreign government. (I have to admit that the title initially made me wince, but hopefully I’ll get over that.)

The venture’s stated aims include “start[ing] a dialogue with the public,” “provid[ing] you with a window into the work of the people responsible for our foreign policy,” and “tak[ing you behind the scenes at the State Department.” The first topic should get things rolling nicely: “Who Should be Allowed To Possess Nuclear Technology?”
