Romanian President, Traian Basescu speaking about Internet at WBF

I’m at the World Blogging Forum in the Palace of The Parliament and doing live blogging ๐Ÿ™‚

Romanian president Traian Basescu was the surprise of the day (at least for me) because he came to a blogging event and had a very interesting speech about new media, twitter, blogging and online journalism.

Very surprised to hear Traian Basescu talking about online advertising on blogs about the twitter revolution in Moldova or about the Internet attacks in Estonia and Georgia.

For me was a schock to hear the president speak about new media because I was used to hear him talking about pensions, farmers and social issues and I though that he has no idea about young active people and their online behaviour.

The only thing I can say is that the Romanian president is a hardcore internet user and probably he has a very good counselor in new media.
