OK, still 20 months out, but Richard gave me the idea tonight that it’s not too early to start thinking about the 2010 elections. With that in mind and my fascination of all things social media and modern communication, coupled with my love/hate of the media and passion for politics, here goes the new venture Dunedin2010.
Lets use the full power of the web to communicate every aspect of the election. There is no excuse (apart from not being online) for us not to use Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblar, WordPress, Flickr, I won’t at this stage be including MySpace in the mix (unless someone convinces me otherwise).
So it’s only a start, but we have Flickr accounts, Twitter accounts – follow it @dunedin2010, there will be a facebook page and all of the other relevant social media bookmarking and linking accounts.
More to follow, but in the meantime, lets show up the tradition media and see how far we can push the envelope of political informed social media.
