McCain-Palin vs. Obama-Biden: Technology and the U.S. presidential election

The MacJury marches into dangerous territory by taking on the topic of technology and the United States Presidential election. While trying (and failing) to be objective, the panel discusses:

• The existence of a tech constituency
• The importance of tech savvy in a chief executive
• Both campaigns use of social networks

MacJury asks, “Are political campaigns held to different standards of privacy and perception than corporate marketing efforts? Are there dangers in being a vocal participant in the election debates? Why can’t you donate to either campaign with PayPay?”

All these and many more election tech topics are debated (MP3 audio, 57:33) by the panel (Joe Kissell, Tom Negrino, Dori Smith, Chuck Joiner) here.
