The KCPW interview with Blair Feulner went well this morning. You can listen to the recording here. Kos of DailyKos did a nice summary here. Finally, the campaign hit Metafilter this morning. A nice way to kick off December!
Dr. Alan Rosenblatt of the Media Center at the American Press Institute has written a blog entry about my use of a wiki. His point that this is the future of politics is apt. Communication, technology, and the Internet has affected every aspect of our lives. Government and politicians need to realize it is better to embrace this change rather than continue to fight against it.
I spent last Monday in Saint George, Utah. In the morning, I had the opportunity to talk with the Southern Utah Democrats club at their luncheon which was covered by the Saint George Spectrum. Later I talked with local officials and citizens, did an hour talk show with Bryan Hyde, and was interviewed by Tamara Lee on KCSG Channel 6. Thanks to all who made this visit possible. I look forward to seeing you again.
While I was in Saint George, Politics1.com reinaugurated its “Site of the Day” picks and made my site the first for “allowing richer public participation”. Many sites picked up on the recent poll; Daily Kos, DSCC “From the Roots”, MyDD, Western Democrat, and Swing State Project.
Jamie Gadette (and an uncredited Shane Johnson) has written an article about my “open source” campaign in this week’s Salt Lake City Weekly.
The Salt Lake Tribune quotes me on what makes a good password.
Finally, Matthew Reinbold interviews me on technology, copyright, and DRM issues on the Muted Noise website.
Boing Boing linked me today. Thank you Mark.
Many people from around the country have since emailed me expressing support but regretting that they can’t vote for me. There are two ways non-Utahns can help. First, spread the word. Second, contribute financially. It is no secret that this campaign hinges on national attention. Please help get that nationwide gaze focused on Utah.
