Americans through the use of their televisions and radio, will surely hear this week from Howard Dean at the DNC. That's a given. But will Americans remember who he is and what he stood for 12 months from now? In the old days of mass media (radio and television) only communications the answer would of been no. Past political presidential elections like the record business were filled with one hit (election) wonders. But, will the Internet let voices like Dean's just go away? I think the link (still available on the web today) below, from over a year ago answers the question and says it all.
(Note: The Governor just posted this. It may take a while to open due to the volume of traffic. A transcript: "I'm Governor Howard Dean. I'm amazed by the incredible outpouring of support we've seen on the Internet today. We have 7 hours left until the midnight filing deadline. Thank you so much for all the help; thank you so much for making this history. This campaign is really moving, and I appreciate it.-- MG)
Next week's Democratic National Convention is surely a historical event for the weblog world. Weblogging pioneer Dave Winer has even set up a community site just for bloggers participating in the DNC next week. The new site is up and running now, so be sure to check it out and follow the DNC event from the webloggers perspective there all next week.
But what about audio posts and other weblog multimedia being captured at the DNC. How do I find it? The task for this weblog next week will be to discover and link to weblog audio posts and other multimedia from the DNC. So, if you hear or see an interesting weblog post next week about or from the DNC, let me know.
... and be sure to check back here each day next week to hear all (or any of) the audio posts from the DNC I come up with.
