I think we should avoid getting dragged into discussing actual politics on this list, but there are some very interesting uses of net video going on right now around the election. Dan Gillmor points to a Bush "Faces of Frustration" remix done by the DNC: http://weblog.siliconvalley.com/column/dangillmor/archives/010847.shtml I while back I sent a link to the Republican "Kerry Iraq Documentary" that is here: http://www.kerryoniraq.com/ I also found two debating dolphins named "Flipper" and "Flopper" here: http://www.flippercam.com/ One humorous, but telling, observation is that, at least today, both the RNC and DNC web sites feature more prominent images of their opponent then their own candidate. http://www.democrats.org http://www.rnc.org It seems that video *editing* can be a very effective means of satire, and is being featured on the websites of each party. I would have expected to see more of this happening at the grass roots level, and less on the DNC/RNC web sites. In my opinion, the best video satire of the year, isn't truly video, but was the JibJab Flash animation. It was observant, hilarious, "fair and balanced", cynical, and yet somehow (at least to me) managed to seem upbeat. -- Sean -- --------------------------------------------------------------------------- M.
