Tech President

As the US presidential election heats up, I've been more and more interested in how the candidates are shaping up, particularly on the web.  One of my daily newsletters, Tech President (blog), has recently become something I look forward to each day.  It's by the Personal Democracy Forum and focuses on, you guessed it, how technology is changing politics (or not).

It's fascinating to see how things are playing out. For instance, think it's so interesting that the Democrats jumped into the YouTube debates and a number of the Republican candidates won't take it seriously. There is something about this that reminds me of the experienced executive that is too busy to worry about the company's web site.

Anyway, if you're interested in the upcoming elections and a thorough take on how the web is shaping politics, Tech President is good start.
