Election Stuff

So unfortunately, its been quite a while since I posted here, even though I’ve been so incredibly busy. I started volunteering for a local congressional campaign, Jerry McNerney. I got really involved, walked precincts every weekend for the last three weekends and set up this great website for him. I had a blog and a forum that was starting to take off, a newspaper writing tool, all sorts of fun stuff. It turns out that some people are still not ready for the internet to have a place in politics. His campaign manager thought it was not a good idea to let people write whatever they wanted on the site – open dialogue is apparently dangerous. I know that someday soon the internet will be the future of politics, I’m just trying to figure out how to help it along. I will probably be posting quite a lot on this topic in the near future.
