VIDEO: HuffPo Launches Technology Section -- FCC Chair, Jimmy Wales, Others to Blog

The Hufffington Post, the Web's most influential blog, is launching a technology section today edited by Jose Antonio Vargas, former Washington Post reporter. 

Signed-up to blog are a number technology innovators and wonks including FCC chairman Julius Genachowski who will write about net neutrality, Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales and others.

Jose says in this interview that "technology is anthropology" and the site will address how technology is used and how it affects society. 

It will be interesting to see how this page will be heard above the roar of  the mass of technology publications and blogs.  It surely has some advantages.  The site will have extremely high search optimization and traffic.   The publication claims 20 million unique users per month.

Interviewed him at the Huffington Post headquarters in lower Manhattan last week.
