|01/16/2008 Technologies Influence on Politics
Can, and will, the next generation of politicians exploit
the communication mediums available to them? Will the new communication
mediums have the power to influence public opinion? Will politicians
be the victims of technology, or will they use it to their benefit?
Will one party benefit from the use of the technology more than
another? All reasonable questions, considering the role technology
plays in todays society.
The staggering distribution numbers, through channels like iTunes,
YouTube, or podcasting websites, indicate that technology could
play a critical role in the upcoming elections. Technology could
be the deciding factor in the 2008 US Presidential race, and
while distribution has never before been as accessible as it
is to today's politicians and political candidates, politicians
have far less control over the news and media than their counterparts
in previous years.

David Hawkins, director of public policy and research for the
National Association for College Admission Counseling, told
The Boston Globe.

boards, the paper said.

|01/03/2008 A Recap of 2007
The lens through which viewers receive their news has changed.
The images of struggle are no longer frozen in time; technology
has helped preserve and personalize these conflicts by producing
moving tributes to the conflicts of humankind.
The strife and internal conflicts that marred the globe in 2006
continued into 2007: Mynamar (Burma), Palestine and Lebanon
all continue to struggle with internal conflicts in their borders.
The differences between 2006 and 2007 are not obvious; however,
under close examination, it is evident that several external
struggles have been transformed into internal conflicts. In
2006, many countries attempted to influence their neighbors.
This was evident with Iran attempting to influence the turmoil
in Iraq, and Syria attempting to control Lebanon. Both struggles
have evolved into internal personal conflicts in 2007.
