How Might the U.S. Utilize Innovative Technologies To Discuss U.S. Foreign Policy?
Secretary Clinton recently posted her first DipNote blog entry and is participating in a new online forum, “Ask the Secretary.” She also launched an internal State Department website, “The Sounding Board,” to solicit feedback from Department staff. Secretary Clinton said, “There is no doubt in my mind that we have barely scratched the surface as to what we can use to communicate with people around the world, and in fact, to use them [new technologies] as tools…to further our own work and be smart about it.”
