debating technology

I'm watching the vice presidential debate via streaming from c-span.org (since my TV is occupied at the moment). Here's the high bandwidth Windows media link. According to posts on the Kerry-Edwards blog, CSPAN2 is doing split-screen and you can get that stream also. My media player is flaky so I don't want to jinx it since I have a good stream from CSPAN.

While I was on the blog, I was amazed at how many posts there were. I wanted to see if there was something similar going on at the Bush-Cheney blog. I'm assuming there would be if they actually allowed comments! I guess I shouldn't be surprised since the Bush administration is notorious for wanting to control the message.

Interesting to note the differences between the two campaign's use of technology.

UPDATE: Since the start of the debate, the Kerry-Edwards blog has added four posts, not including the open debate thread post. Also, I'll get a capture of the replies to the open thread and update this post with the total number of posts and the total number of unique posters.

UPDATE: If I did my greps and sorts, and uniqs right there were 264 posts at the end of the debate from 89 unique posters.
