Technology Plays Key Role in Obama Success Story

Michael Geist, Weblog, Feb 11, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

If you are wondering why Barak Obama is doing so well in the polls, writes Michael Geist, part of the answer may be found in his (and his supporters') use of technology. Not just the Yes We Can video, which may (in my view) be one of the best political advertisements ever, but also his technological stance. "He provides evidence that net neutrality, broadband access, and digital copyright have moved beyond mere business concerns into front-line political issues that cannot be easily ignored." Contrast that to the stance taken by the Canada's Industry Minister.
