Web Politics, Circa 2000
Micah Sifry is unimpressed by MyDebates.org, a site launched by the Commission on Presidential Debates and MySpace.
Very unimpressed: This is pathetic. It's like saying, "I just bought a synthesizer and all I can think to do with it is play Chopsticks."
I don't fault MySpace for this travesty so much as I fault the Commission, for lack of imagination and courage... What they're offering us here is little more than live video streaming, which is like, so, year 2000.
The Commission, he says, is a fusty relic of the two-party establishment, and the site reflects that fustiness.
