Salute To Port

When any of us in the blogosphere succeed, we all benefit, and I would like to offer congratulations to two bloggers from the port side of the 'sphere. Glenn Greenwald recently released a new book, How Would A Patriot Act?, in which he offers his critiques of the war on terror. The book just hit #1 on Amazon's best-seller list, proving that the blogosphere has plenty of talent for the book market.

John Aravosis at Americablog achieved another form of blogospheric success. Due to his discovery of the ease in which anyone can purchase cell-phone records, John has helped get legislation passed protecting the privacy of all cell phone customers. (If you'll recall, John first bought his own cell phone records through a third party -- and when that didn't get much attention, he bought the records for General Wesley Clark -- which got Congressional attention quickly.)

Both men show that the blogosphere's influence and power continue to increase and therefore make the market better for all of us. Congratulations on your successes.
