Blogger Testifies Before Congress on Free Internet Speech

Michael Krempasky of the conservative blog RedState.org testified today before the Committee on House Administration of the US House of Representatives. The topic: Political speech on the Internet, and the prospect of it being compromised by the Federal Election Commission and others via the Online Freedom of Speech Act.

His prepared speech, posted on the blog, is interesting reading not simply because it is an eloquent defense of free Internet speech, but because it offers a concise history of blogging and discusses its impact on politics and other areas.
