Some friends of mine and I started up a blog recently, which, as you'll see if you follow the link, is mostly in German. I posted some reflections on the special effects of election night 2008, though, in English, and I thought I'd link over to here. Nothing too profound, but I'd be interested in hearing your comments. (Who knows, maybe I'll even get around to writing the article I envision there...)
Here's the post: Presidential Politics and the Anthropotechnical Interface.
Anyway, I hope everyone's doing well.
