Obama’s online townhall meeting

Maybe our esteemed governor and state representatives should do something like this . . . wait, the only Republican in the state that understands internet technology is Pat Powers (And he’s really a closet Democrat). Nevermind.

Now, in the 21st century, President Obama has found his own fireside equivalent, launching an online town hall meeting Thursday where he will answer citizens’ questions about the troubled economy and his efforts to fix it.

“We’re going to try something a little different. We are going to take advantage of the Internet to bring all of you to the White House to talk about the economy,” he says in an introductory video on the site.

Rumors on the internets; the GOP is oblivious

Bush was internetiotic – to say the least

Meghan McSnotty wrote an interesting article about something the rest of us have known for a very, long, long, time;

The Republican party isn’t exactly Internet savvy. That’s no secret. This has been a source of personal frustration for me for a very long time. Unless the GOP evolves as the party that can successfully utilize the Web, we’ll continue to lose influence. I think nothing confirms this fact to be more true than this recent election. I don’t claim to be an expert on mobilizing voters, but a significant number of the readers on mccainblogette.com, my blog, were between the ages of 18 and 30, a key demographic that either party would want. Many of the established Republican strategists told me that young people would not visit my web site. I used to categorize many of the advisors in my father’s campaign into one of two groups: those that “respected” the Internet and those who didn’t. It was a running line between me and my friends who worked on my site.

Better call up Pity Pat Powers, he’ll show you how it’s done (but don’t bother with his contributor friend Troy unless you have unlimited server space, he’s KINDA wordy.

googles my names on the internets

I forgot about this story coming out yesterday, just caught it today, I talk about my internets footprints and such;

“I don’t mind my internet footprint – besides, I like the traffic it brings to my Web site, southdacola.com,” said Scott L. Ehrisman, 36, Sioux Falls cartoonist, artist, graphic designer and rabid blogger.

 

“I Google my name about once a month just to see what is up and have never seen anything glaring,” Ehrisman said. “I’m a big free-speech person, so it does not bother me to have stuff out there on the Internet.”

Googles me, apparently I own a hog farm in Pennsylvania

A Blast of Cheer from MSM to start your day out right.

2012 is going to be a great year!

I hope it happens while I am in Belize.

“I’m not going to make it to work for the rest of the year, the Sun Gods are angry.”

The RIAA gives up and walks the plank.

It has been a long time coming, but the RIAA has finally realized they are fighting a losing battle. Now, instead of suing dead people and minors, they’ll just tattle on you to your ISP to tell them that you are sharing music back out to the Internet and maybe they’ll do something about it. Pfft! Whatever.

The moral of the story is this, download using a bittorrent client or whatever other method you prefer, but just don’t share it back out to the Internet. DUH!

Fireside Chats on the Internats

Obama will be the first president to use the internet and YouTube to deliver his weekly address. Here is his first pre-presidential address.

This is pretty cool considering McCain didn’t know how to use a computer and Bush had to have staff members load his 13 favorite songs onto his I-Pod.

Change is coming . . . one can only hope.

UPDATE: Kevin Woster seems to be fearful of this new medium (yes, he is talking about the internet).

I’m with Susan Stamberg.

Like her, I’m sad that the weekly presidential radio messages will now be on YouTube.

Geez.

And the newspaper business wonders why they are going in the toilet.
