More Wonkiness in Delaware

Delaware's blogosphere has gotten a little wonkier recently. There's a new blog in town, and it's called DelaWonk.
The blog is written by an otherwise anonymous blogger by the name of Mark, who likes to highlight policy issues like WiFi in Philly and DelDOT's use of Google maps. His own blurb sounds high-minded enough, and suggests that he works in the public sector:
DelaWonk is a website that brings together professionals and public policy experts for conversations on policy issues. We try and enlighten the public policy conversation.
But Mark isn't above mixing it up in the messy business of politics. Mark has weighed in a few times on the side of John Carney. For instance, he has complained that John deserves more credit for his efforts on wind power and delved into some arcane details of Jack Markell's TV spots.
Anyway, it's great to see thoughtful, well written commentary from a new blogger. As far as I'm concerned, there's rooms for plenty of wonkiness online here in Delaware.

Thanks for the shout out Tom.

Your blog is the gold standard for wonkiness as far as I'm concerned.

I'm just trying to strike another blow for the propeller heads.

Mr. Noyes, thanks for the link to DelaWonk. Mark provides some useful links to community information. And his blogs are rational and without the polemics usually found with those with an agenda.

delawonk is a fly by night john carney sock puppet. Two weeks after the primary he will be gone.

I'll put $5.00 on it. Any takers?

A bet with an anonymous commenter about an anonymous blogger: The money on the table will have to be unmarked bills.

Sorry. That was me. It sounds a bit strident to me right now - but I was commenting via smart phone and I clipped it a bit.
