The most fitting means of discussing online civic participation is via online civic participation. If you live in a battleground state, turns out you can do so within the context of a presidential election ☺.
On Monday, September 22, representatives of Senator Obama and Senator McCain will discuss their candidate’s technology platform with interested citizens and the media in Cincinnati Ohio. Via Skype video chat.
Tech policy today is super important. Should all citizens have access to affordable broadband? Should all citizens have access to training to utilize broadband? How should innovation be encouraged to ensure job development and technological advances? Should the internet be regulated to ensure full participation? These are some of the technology issues our next presidential administration needs to have thought through. And thought through very carefully.
