Why Tuesday? On Beet.TV

After speaking at the Personal Democracy Forum last month in New York, I sat for an interview with Andy Plesser of Beet.TV, the website and vlog that explores “the root of the media revolution.” Here’s Andy’s description of how, in his words, our “little video blog powered the agenda for election reform.”

A cheap camera, dogged determination, and a smart video blog strategy has created a national dialogue about election form in the United States.

Without press credentials or special access, [Why Tuesday?] managed to tape segments with all of the 2008 presidential candidates and created tremendous attention for the election reform movement.

Independence Day

MobLogic

Our friends at MobLogic were at the Personal Democracy Forum with us last week in New York. Lindsay Campbell asked attendees what they wanted to declare independence from — myself included. After the conference I spent a morning over at the MobLogic HQ to talk more about the state of America’s voting system. Stay tuned for that.
