If you can pull yourself away from desperately refreshing political news websites today, head over to Campaigns and Elections for a longer view of our political landscape.

In this month’s Technology Bytes, we step back and think about the longer-term trends in digital campaigning. Was 2016 a revolutionary year, or was it just another milestone on a straight road into our online future? I’ll argue that in at least one way, this election cycle introduced something truly new into political culture in this country.
