The launch of Policlicks.com's first virtual debate last night was a success. The site held up fine and the candidates made it interesting. Cofounder Ross Myers is going to the forum for NC Senate candidates Kay Hagan and Mark McDaniel tonight (Temple Emanuel on Jefferson Rd., Greensboro, 7 PM), hoping to get Hagan to say she'll tape some debate segments--McDaniel has alread agreed to do his.
Ross was telling me this morning that the same platform Policlicks uses for political content could easily support a video weblog, or vidlog--text and author-created video combined in a personal journal format. Mass adoption of broadband can't come quickly enough for Ross.
