Glenn Reynolds, professor of law at the University of Tennessee, began a personal weblog in August 2001 to comment and link to the day's news, politics, and technological developments. The website, which he gave the self-mocking name of Instapundit, quickly became the most popular and influental of current-events blogs that arose in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks.
Reynolds, who has described his politics as "libertarian," has long been a champion of technological liberation, a supporter of the Iraq War, and an agitator for more social and fiscal libertarianism within the Republican Party. In this interview with Reason.tv Editor Nick Gillespie, the Instapundit talks about his approach to blogging, his disappointment in President Obama's social policies, and the obscure connection between Sarah Palin and a World War II-based video game.
