Virtanen nominated for IT award for his blog

Journalist Fredrik Virtanen has been nominated for the Swedish IT prize Guldmusen (the Golden Mouse) for his “innovative” use of blogs. His quit-smoking-blog at has had thousands of visitors since its inception. No wonder Sweden is in dire straits as an IT nation if that’s the best we’ve got. Are there no Swedish Dan Gillmors, Arianna Huffingtons or David Sifrys out there? This is not aimed at you Fredrik, but what a load of boloney.
