The DNC and new media

Anticipation for the Democratic National Convention is palpable. And, of course, there has been much to-do about the (continued) role that social media and technology will play at this particular event.

Arianna Huffington posts today about a panel that the HuffPo will be hosting – with Universal Music Group – during the DNC about the ways that social media has impacted this campaign. The panel line up includes representatives from the new media (YouTube co-founder and Will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, who launched the “Yes We Can” music video on YouTube) and traditional media (Stephanopoulos of ABC and publisher of Washington Post) sides, as well as a panelist from SNL – on the role that satire has played in this campaign (interesting!) and also repping the business perspective, a UMG public policy/government SVP. The  happens Tuesday at The Brown Palace hotel in Denver. Should be interesting, wish I could go!

Cliz – if you go, will you please take pictures and blog about it? Pretty please??? With a cherry on top!!?
