MORNING AFTER BLOGGING
I’ve been slack on the blogging because I’ve had the good fortune for the past week to have been part of a great group (The Trip2008) campaigning in Ohio for Obama. It was a diverse, smart and charismatic group with quite a few people from the indie film community involved.
Among many good things, it was inspiring for me to witness at street-level the Obama campaign’s blend of old-fashioned grass-roots organizing and 21st century internet-driven civic empowerment, and I look forward to carrying some of these thoughts with me in future ponderings about our independent film community.
I’ll be more up and running on the blog tomorrow, but in the meantime I thought I’d send a blogosphere shout-out to some of the independent media sites who have done great work covering this election, particularly three favorites: Josh Marshall’s Talking Points Memo, The Huffington Post, and Nate Silver’s 538.com. I love these sites, and I’m really looking forward to not clicking on them 200 times a day.
