About This Blog

This blog is based on three assumptions:

1. The Internet is quickly becoming the medium of choice for campaign communications. While television is still used to convey a simple message to the masses, it is unable to engage the voter in a satisfactory way.

2. Technological improvements are rapidly changing the way we vote and the way we gather political information. Touchscreens without a paper trail may only be the beginning. Defending the integrity of our electoral process is a critical aspect of maintaining a legitimate democracy.

3. The blogosphere and web 2.0 are transforming the way political news is transmitted and reported. Bloggers are redefining the role of the media in campaign and election coverage.

Anything related to politics or the Internet is fair game. The focus will rest on the intersection of the two.
