Popular Politicians Use WP

Posted January 21, 2004 by Matt Mullenweg. Filed under General.

Oskar var Rijswijk writes about the leader of the Dutch socialist party starting a weblog and using WordPress. I’m not familiar with the politics of the region, and I can’t read a word on the site (except “WordPress”) but his first post already has 122 comments. So go check out the new Jan Marijnissen Weblog. Adam Curry covers it as well.

Update: Oskar wrote in the following extra information “Adam Curry did not only cover it – het initiated it: he made him do it (meeting him in his Radio Show in The Netherlands, and offering Jan in return to become a meber of his party). Quite a stir in the Dutch blogger community… ” Thanks for the clarification!
