Announcing: Dean Community News.
Jim, the address for tonight's webcast is likely the same address as last week's. We're in the conference room now, Jay McCarthy is here setting up the webcast. Here's the link to the IRC channel. The webcast has started. We're kicking the show off with Paradise By The Dashboard Light by Meatloaf. Here's the page of notes for this meeting.
News.Com: "RealNetworks sued Microsoft on antitrust charges."
Cook Report: "The unusually strong approval numbers among his fellow Republicans builds Bush a very high floor, but the equally strong degree of opposition among Democrats constructs an unusually low ceiling."
Kaye Trammell: Why the Fox Searchlight Pictures Blog Sucks.
NY Times: "Google, the Internet search engine, has begun an experiment with book publishers in which the contents of the first chapters of books, reviews or other bibliographic information is indexed and made available to Web surfers."
More about tonight's demo. I'll explain how the Dean campaign is using the Internet in ways you didn't know about, and that I didn't know about until last night. My eyes popped when I saw what they were doing. Jay Rosen, whose nephew Zack is the Dean developer, got a sneak preview. "Very exciting Dave. Mega cool. Did Zack help with this?" To which I said: "Yes he did, but due to the power of standards, he didn't know he did. ;->" That's the way it's supposed to work. Open level playing field. Anyone who wants to can innovate. Small pieces, loosely joined. Tune in to tonight's webcast. The app I'm demoing is a Web app so you'll be able to follow along from home. 7PM Eastern.
