McCain vs. Obama – Who deserves the tech vote?

August 24, 2008 in News & Events | Comments (0)


John McCain recently proclaimed himself “illiterate” with regards to technology.
But as Sonia Arrison explains in her column this week at TechNewsWorld, the jury is still out with regards to which candidates “gets it” on the tech front.
Candidly, I think that any policy McCain may put forward is nothing more than window dressing and a whole lot of bullshit.
After all, he is illiterate on tech so how the hell does he know if the policy is sound? I know. I know. It’s about the people with whom he surrounds himself … but frankly since the buck stops with the person living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, I’d feel a heck of a lot better with someone who at least knows where the power switch is on their computer.
The thing that excites me most about this discussion, however, is that Sonia is testing out Seesmic to talk about it and give people an opportunity to discuss the topic further.
With that … here’s the conversation … Hope you’ll join in.
