About the Larson Report

       The Larson Report is an active online site where ideas can be presented and considered in a setting that turns down the noise of contentious advocacy.  It is our objective to provide readers with information and resources that will help them formulate their opinions and encourage them to act on their ideas and aspirations. 

       The content reflects the personal interests we've pursued in various capacities:  politics and government, education funding,  sustainability, and philanthropy.  In addition, we present a list of newspapers and other media with Web portals that we hope readers will find useful. We showcase new and innovative artists (Gallery), so if you are an artist looking for an electronic venue, we encourage you to contact us. 

       The Wall Street Journal wrote the blurb below when they published an article on the bloggers who were credentialed for the Democratic convention in July 2004.  --Allen Larson

Describe your blog
. An Internet magazine that encourages the exchange of ideas. 

How do you plan to cover the convention?
By attending the convention, speaking to delegates, and listening to the ideas they express. 

What kind of content can readers expect?
Content that relates to issues of the economy, the environment, and community welfare. Also observations about the convention itself and the political trends it portends.

Why should people read your coverage? Our desire is to relay to readers what they would observe themselves if they were physically present in Boston during the convention. 

What's the biggest gap in convention coverage by mainstream media in prior election years?
I'm more interested to figure out how the Internet and this evolving form of journalism may be useful going forward. 

Moment/speaker/event you're most looking forward to covering.
I'm interested to know why people will be attending and what they hope their attendance will help to realize. 

Whom did you support in the Democratic primary?
N/A. 

Whom do you plan to vote for in November? I'm a registered Republican and support President Bush. You'll note on my Web site that both Democratic and Republican officials have presented thoughtful legislative ideas. I'm looking for ways to find connections that cut across the ideologies.  --From Carl Bialik and Elizabeth Weinstein, "Meet the Bloggers," Wall Street Journal, July 26, 2004.
