Being a Geek on Election Night
I spent election night using technology to an extreme. Twitter, Facebook, Text Message, and a variety of sites and widgets.
My friend Eduardo, aka Dudu, in Brazil and I, in New York, exchanged quite a few tweets about the night’s outcome emerged. Social technology allowed this great night to be enjoyed by a huge number of people all across the globe and I’m very happy to have been a part of it. Dudu asked me to write up a few thoughts for his blog this morning about the election and the night. You can see Dudu’s blog and his company at Colmeia.tv.
Here’s a direct link to my post about the election. (Update: The link is no longer live.)
(Also, the photo is from the actual voting booth I cast my vote in. Notice the very old technology some of us still use to vote!)
