governing myself accordingly

governing myself accordingly: day 365.

It’s hard to believe that it was actually a year ago today that my petite affair with Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach became public. Though we may have had some rough bumps over the past year, I think we may have discovered how to make our relationship work in this great province we call Alberta.

It’s been a growing year for both the Premier and I. After the PCs won their first majority government under Stelmach, they finally decided to hire someone with more than a basic understanding of the interweb. Next week, the PCs caucus will be launching a new interactive If successful, it may have the potential to push Alberta’s political-class into joining the world of web 2.0.

I’m not sure how Stelmach will be celebrating the occasion, but I will celebrate by hopping on a bus to Saskatchewan. I will be speaking at the Canadian University Press annual conference in Saskatoon this weekend. I’m excited to be be delivering a session on politics, new media, and web 2.0 on Friday afternoon, and to be joining blogger Joey Coleman in a panel discussion on blogging on Saturday.

(For those of you interested in some legal followup to the incident, in November 2008 the Alberta Law Review published an article titled ‘ and the Tort of Misappropriation of Personality,’ which is quite interesting.)
