Online Conference, 4/16/09 

Tomorrow at 8 a.m. EST, there will be an online conference (appropriately so) covering YouTube and the 2008 Election in the United States--One of the first of many conferences to come to assess the role of new media technology on elections here and abroad.

Given the candidate-centered nature of campaigns here in America, all candidates try to exploit the newest and best technologies to give them the needed edge over the opposition, and thus sets the trends for other democratic countries where the political party plays a greater role over campaigns.

The information about the conference can be found below:


Tomorrow’s YouTube and the 2008 Election Cycle in the United States Conference will stream live for the duration of the conference at the following URL:
