'Connected' GOP Politician to Keynote Network Gathering

The Freedom to Connect conference starts tomorrow, and one of the speakers may sound a bit unlikely. The keynoter will be Jim Douglas, governor of Vermont.

Actually, his presence at the suburban Washington meeting makes a lot of sense. As Tom Evslin (a Vermonter who’s had some influence in this regard) notes on his blog, Vermont is moving toward becoming a true “e-state” in the best sense of the word, and Douglas, a Republican, is leading the charge.

This initiative could set a real precedent, whether by success or failure. Let’s hope it’s not the latter.
