Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm very interested in this and will try to spend some time and energy over the next year looking at the question of a European blogosphere. I'll let you know what's going on as I work through things.

Your point about language is one clear difficulty to a large mass blog on the dkos scale and style. However, a European blogosphere would not have to be organized on the same principles. It really might be a series of smaller regional/national blogs with interaction to a couple of metablogs. These few metablogs would likely be in English and/or French, German, and Spanish.

Can you say "subsidiarity"? :)

There are, of course, other possible models.

Thanks. If you come up with anything that would be great.

I added a few new blogs which I found to the list. One B-List (Florian Mueller's blog on software patents in Europe), the others small.

There is a guy:


he's been a real hub at various points in the SW patents campaign. I think that campaign may come to prominence again in the next few months. Maybe it will be useful to see if he becomes a hub again.

Software Patents (or Patent policy in general) is definitely one to watch. I think I blogged a bit on it in response to Ciarán's post and your diary on that. So, that's one to add, yeah.
