I decided to follow my heart and do what I could to learn about what an Obama presidency would mean for this country and started posting on SEATTLEFORBARACKOBAMA.COM in February 2007. HOWIEINSEATTLE.COM will continue to follow progressive Democratic politics in the spirit of Howard Dean's effort to "Take Our Country Back."--"In the face of impossible odds, people who love their country can change it."--Barack Obama

"How the Internet is Changing American Politics" (Video)
"If not for the internet, Hillary Clinton would be the presumptive Democratic nominee"--On Friday March 28, media innovators converged for a panel titled “How the Internet is Changing American Politics.”
The participants, all trailblazers in the world of new media, compared 2008 campaign tactics, questioned the horserace mentality of the election coverage, debated the role of the media and even questioned the nature of truth.
Moderating was media critic Jeff Jarvis of CUNY and the blog BuzzMachine. The panelists were Arianna Huffington (Huffington Post), Micah Sifry (TechPresident.com), Jay Rosen (NewAssignment.net) and Lisa Tozzi (The New York Times).
