Yes (Carl) Scan

Dan Gillmor is a BoingBoing guest-blogger.

In his worthy campaign — dubbed Yes We Scan! — to become America's public printer, or head of the Government Printing Office, Carl Malamud will take to the Twitter-waves at noon (Pacific Time) today to give a mini-speech of tweets about his plans. Then he's off to Washington to make more waves of the political sort.

Follow the Twitter campaign here.

There's a whimsical element to all this. But Carl is the real deal, and his idea is not only sensible but important.

Go for it, @carlmalamud —
