Politicians as Internet Stars?
My, how our political situation is different ot Japan's!

According to this story, Japan's Prime Minister, Junichiro Koizumi now has almost two million people subscribing to his emailed newsletter.

Even if we scale that figure to match NZ's meagre 4 million population, it's the equivalent of Helen Clark having an online fan club of over 60,000 people who might feel keen enough to subscribe to a mailing list of her prose.

The Japanese figure is even more astounding when you realise that for a great many Japanese Net users, their mobile phone is their primary email and browsing tool.

I see that Helen does have her own website which has a sparsely populated section titled "Column" but that seems to be about as close as she comes to matching her Japanese peer.

But have I missed anything?

Is there a WeLoveHelen.govt.nz fan site somewhere?
