FutureMajority’s Sarah Burris…has a beer with e.politics

The first e.politics online interview! In which Sarah Burris (of FutureMajority and Rock the Vote) and I discuss writing, the question of why most campaigns can’t figure out the internet, the delicate balance of losing control, and the joys of making fun of David All. We had a great time and might just have learned a thing or two before we were done.

Want to see it from the other side? Sarah’s got you covered. Note that I put this together with Windows Movie Maker, which is fairly primitive, so the titles and credits are, well, fairly primitive. Better technology coming soon, I hope.

But wait, there’s more! After the break, we examine the process of…doing a Bassik.

If you know him, you’ll know what we mean…Luv Ya Michael!

  • very nice first interview. I enjoyed the discussion. of course the net isn’t just for progressive liberal democrats. although mccain isn’t too good at that “email stuff”, believe me everyone is trying to be the next viral thing. assuming during the next election republicans and democrats are equal in the e-savy, then it is all about who gets a more clever semi-random (i believe) hook that captures the attention of the mass internet audience. your interview brought up an interesting point about candidates keeping control. You most likely cant figure out the hook that will work before it will work. you have to try a bunch of things and something all the sudden everyone wants to see. it will be interesting to see how candidates resolve this point with keeping control.

    very nice use of video. enjoyed it. who was el chep-a-cabra?
