At 8:48PM Eastern I'm in Dean HQ in Burlington, VT. We're all watching the C-SPAN broadcast of one of the caucuses. When a delegate switches to Dean -- cheers. We're watching the grid on the Des Moines Register website. It cross-tabs by county and candidate. It's all zeros now.
Today's Scripting News comes to you from Dean Headquarters in Burlington, VT. I'll be here tonight for the Iowa caucuses. Earlier today we announced Channel Dean here on Scripting News. In a bit there will be a post on the Dean blog. Comments are welcome.
Do you have video of Judy Dean speaking yesterday? Send me email if you do.
Steve Gillmor: "Channel Dean is a blueprint for effective advocacy that should (and likely will be) cloned by all the other campaigns."
Mike Wendland: "I am daily amazed at the Dean campaign's creative and passionate use of the Net."
A list of feeds we're subscribed to on the private group aggregator for Dean staff. Just getting started. If you have suggestions of other feeds we should be watching, please post them in the comments here.
Sitting inside Dean HQ today I find myself wondering if the McGovern endorsement of Clark is good news or bad.
GoUpstate has the AP news wire as an RSS feed. Good for firehose-sipping.
Dowbrigade: "Dave and the Deanies' first move is an innovative effort to create and distribute a really useful RSS feed - not one which will just endless repeat the main story line the campaign wants to propagate at any particular time, but one which will include 'everything everyone involved with the campaign needs to know.'"
Diego Doval has a new desktop app in Java that builds on the Share Your OPML SDK.
Meanwhile, chief Dean blogger Matt Gross has moved over one state, to New Hampshire, where he's seeking other bloggers covering the campaign there. You don't have to be a Dean supporter to participate.
I've become an old-movie buff thanks to Turner Classic Movies. One of the best early talkies is Grand Hotel (1932), starring many of my favorites. It's the movie in which Greta Garbo said "I want to be alone." Anyway, Lionel Barrymore plays an old sick guy who's dying and decides to have a final fling at the Grand Hotel. Of course the predators swoop in, but they all fall in love with the old coot (he is sweet). But at one point he loses his wallet that has his life savings, and he breaks down in tears and gives a wonderful monologue. He says no one will watch out for you, no matter what. He needs the money to have a life, he says. His thread in the movie is about unlearning a lifetime of bitterness and of course the person who stole his wallet puts it back and he finds it, and Joan Crawford takes care of him, and life goes on. I don't know why I told you this story. I guess because I liked it. ;->
Chris Clark: "Bite the bullet and give us full text."
NY Times: "CBS has rejected Super Bowl advertisements from two groups, saying the ads violated its advocacy rules. At the same time, the network has in the past and could again accept spots from the White House's antidrug office, raising questions about what is acceptable and what is not, and why."
channelDean.xml. It'll be updated through the Iowa caucuses tonight, and if everything goes well, we'll have real-time returns channeled through the feed. We'll use this channel to focus on weblog coverage of the last week of the New Hampshire campaign, citizen journalism. And beyond that, who knows. That's the cool thing about this effort. Everything is very time-compressed. There's a chance to move. Few reasons not to.
How Channel Dean came to be. "Even the longest story begins with a single weblog post."
Channel Dean FAQ. "Several editors led by Mathew Gross, all at Dean For America, are periodically scanning the news, and selecting articles for inclusion in the flow."
