C-SPAN’s hub for the debates

Posted by: on Sep 26, 2008 | No Comments

I received an email yesterday letting me know about how C-SPAN will cover the debates Web 2.0 style:

I remember reading a post of yours a few weeks ago about the Web 2.0-friendly hub CSPAN had launched for the two party conventions. I don’t know if you’ve heard about it yet, but CSPAN just announced the other day that they’re going to launch a similar hub for the presidential debates; they’re going to be following Twitter tags and monitoring blog posts that cover the debates. Here’s the clip where they announced the new launch:

Anyway, I thought this was something you and your readers would find interesting.

I do. Unlike the conventions, the debates I will probably watch live. But I’ll also want to see what people are saying and tweeting about them, and I do like C-SPAN’s approach of bringing these all together.
