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?”
