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!)
