Today wired.com has a great article about Wikipedia Scanner, a piece of software created by a Cal Tech student that allows users to see what organizations have been anonymously editing their own Wikipedia entries.
What he found is amazing. Corporations, members of Congress, even the CIA editing their own pages. Score one for accountability!
Read the article.
Use Wikipedia Scanner.

Last Monday Project Vote Smart's own Mike Wessler appeared on The Right Balance with Greg Allen to promote our programs, especially the upcoming Political Courage Test (PCT).
Mike did a great job, and we really owe Greg and everyone at the Accent Radio Network for providing such a great platform for us.
You can listen to the interview at The Voter's Speakeasy.

This week there is a funny article in Slate by Michael Weiss entitled 'What Not to Name Your Blog.'
On the heals of the YearlyKos Convention, he comments on an array of liberal and conservative blogs' titles and their relative merits.
Lucky for me, I think 'I, Voter' passes muster.

This is just a link to a comment I posted in a Blogger help forum. I am getting a little depressed about the lack of response to my original post, so I thought mentioning the problem here as well might increase--maybe even double--my (minute) chance of a rapid response.
Also, maybe this is a very common problem. If you have a solution, or would like more information, please comment on this post.
Here's the text of my query:
My Google Adsense banners appeared on my blog for months, but all of
the sudden they're gone:
At 9:30 this morning (Mountain Time), Mike Wessler from the P.R. department will be discussing our Key Votes program on The Right Balance with Greg Allen.
Mike's an alumn of the Key Votes Department, so he'll know what he's talking about.
I'll try to get some info on where to listen to this later for those of you who can't make it to the site in the next 10 minutes.
