Scoble has decided to be on hand for a political announcement from one of the 2008 Presidential candidates (ye gods - the election season just ended). Anyway, here's what he has to say about it:
Already look at how people are posting information about the candidates to Wikipedia. No more “control the message” here. The only way to control this beast is to lay it all out there and make yourself, and your views, open to everyone.
Hmm. He's way, way more optimistic about that than I am. So long as he's headed to this candidate's launch - and maybe he'll take a PodTech camera to visit other candidates over the next 18 months, too - perhaps he could ask some questions about issues that the tech community is interested in: software patent law, the ever lengthening lifespan of copyrights (along with the DRM mess that comes with that), and whether net neutrality should (or should not) be dealt with in law. Those are all things that don't fit neatly into the US left/right, red/blue story line - but things that us techies care a lot about.
