Introduction Working on a project to use blogging in an international education project got me started in the blogosphere. Now I'm hooked! I've always been a bit of a computer geek and writing has been a key part of my positions in arts and non-profit administration. My career has spanned such disparate roles as symphony and opera management, political communication roles, social justice advocacy leadership and literacy project management. I'm interested in blogging as a tool for artists, for social communication and as a tool for political empowerment and social justice. I'm most interested in the connections between those goals. Where can the arts empower and give expression, hope to the socially oppressed? Where can political organizing help artists gain more independence and be more heard in our society? And how can our technological tools, websites, blogs, RSS, podcasting, virtual communities like Second Life (where I am Kate Miranda)further all of these goals?
