From the Hello World! post:
With The Progressive Pulse, Policy Watch joins the exploding world of interactive, online discussion and community building. The objective of The Progressive Pulse is to supplement North Carolina’s growing blogosphere with a website that features a dynamic combination of quick, easy-to-digest takes on the latest state policy news and debates, links to other informative sites, and timely updates from the North Carolina General Assembly and other policymaking venues.
Note: The Progressive Pulse is a serious effort. It has not been launched “because everybody has a blog.” It will not lie fallow for days on end like so many blog sites that seem to be mere afterthoughts to their sponsoring organizations. Each business day, visitors to The Progressive Pulse will find the insights of a growing team of experienced analysts and advocates and, in short order we hope, the comments of interested bloggers throughout the state.
