The US State Department has started a blog, Dipnote (jargon for a diplomatic note—“a formal communication between an ambassador and a minister of the host government or another ambassador.” They hope it “will provide you with a window into the work of the people responsible for our foreign policy, and will give you a chance to be active participants in a community focused on some of the great issues of our world today. With Dipnote we are going to take you behind the scenes at the State Department and bring you closer to the personalities of the Department. We are going to try and break through some of the jargon and talk about how we operate around the world.”

Articles on Dipnote as of today are: The Question of the Week: Who Should be Allowed To Possess Nuclear Technology? UNGA (United Nations General Assembly) 101, Protecting Diplomats at UNGA: The Inside Story, Direct from the U.S. Embassy in New Delhi (India), August in the Big Easy (New Orleans, Louisiana, USA), and an impressive Blog Roll.

It is probably worth checking out this blog just to get information on some the blogs the State Department follows.
