The election and the web

by thoughtfulconservative

An e-mail from techPresident informs me that the last post on John McCain’s blog was Mar. 4 and before that was Feb. 25. What’s up with that?

Some other news on the technology front, courtesy of techPresident.

YouTube is expanding its popular YouChoose platform to Senators, Congressman, and state candidates.

There was also a link to a site called TubeMogul which had an analysis of the correlation between online video views and donations to presidential candidates. Fascinating.
