Trippi Out, Internet Off, Dean Done

Howard
Dean without Joe
Trippi
and the Internet Strategy is just another angry
little man too close to the edge, and is yesterday’s news as a political
phenomena.

The Dean campaign was always more interesting than the
candidate himself, and the shame of it is they had barely scratched
the surface of the interface between cyberspace and politics before
getting shut down.

As it stands, we will have to wait for ’08 to see the
Internet Strategy taken to the next level on the national stage.  In
the meantime, watch local races, where a few hundred strategically
mobilized voters can swing an election, and targeted protest campaigns
as the probing ground for digital democracy.

Good night, Howard.  Last one out, turn out the
lights….
