Presidential Twitter Debate

Very interesting story on NPR about the current presidential twitter debate going on between the Obama and McCain camps. Listen to the store here.

Weekend Edition Sunday, June 22, 2008 – Andrew Rasiej, founder of the Personal Democracy Forum, a Web site that focuses on the intersection of politics and technology, talks about the Twitter debate between presidential hopefuls John McCain and Barack Obama. He also discusses the forum’s upcoming conference.

The story also discusses how Web 2.0 and the internet has and will change democracy, and it even ponders how our country would be different had our founding fathers had access to the internet.

(You can listen in on the twitter debate here or here.)

    Whew – that was a close one. I mean – you could have quoted from the AP and we would all be dead! At least it was from NPR. I don’t think they are a stick in the mud like the AP :)

    Anyway – this is like the 2.0 month. Last week I created my Resume 2.0, this week it is Democracy 2.0. Cool. I just noticed Mike Nelson mentioned ‘e-government 2.0.’ Interesting points being made in the debate.
