Kudos to CNN for using holographic imagery for the first time in TV reporting.
35 high definition cameras surround Jessica Yellin in a tent in Chicago at the massive Obama rally as she is beamed live to the CNN situation room to talk with Wolf Blitzer.
The imagery is imperfect but of a high enough quality to suggest we’ll be seeing this tool used more and more as a virtual meeting environment.
Good job CNN !
Matt Ingram’s asking about Facebook and politics, noting that CNET thinks they don’t mix all that well.
They do mix. Superficiality, negativity, whimsy, and personalities are all key components of social networks and of the American political experience. The best online strategies may actually win these races, especially in the wide open Republican nomination. I predict Romney will win that in some part thanks to his excellent family blogging efforts. Online campaign marketing will certainly contribute to the win in ways disproportionate to their cost and to other media efforts.
