Couric Coverage of the Election: Embedded Live Video

abstract:For the first time in election history, a major television news network produced a widget that could be embedded on any person's website or blog which viewers could watch any place there is internet. I for one benefited from this as I have no cable or satellite TV where I happened to be on election night, and so I was thrilled to find live streaming video of the election online. It meant I could watch the election results on my computer screen. It was a "power to the people" sort of media move that was supported entirely by INTEL. (Intel of course being the computer chip found in virtually all computer technology.) This is another aspect of the success of people who embrace technology - as demonstrated by the campaign strategists in Obama's team. From the grass-roots fundraising campaign to the use of internet to distribute information and gather support, it represents a powerful message about the value of technology in media and politics.
