San Francisco is attempting to make bloggers register themselves so their political speech can be regulated. At best this is a crazy unenforceable law that could easily be gotten around. At worst it could create a registry of bloggers that has a chilling effect on free speech. And as one commenter pointed out, the "evidence" required to crack down on a blog could be easily generated by the city government out of thin air. If you live in San Francisco, please contact the legislators and executives whose contact information is at the post linked to above, and speak your mind.
