Free Technology For Teachers: Super Tuesday- Who the "techies" are favoring

Techcrunch.com is an industry leading technology blog. Tech Crunch has endorsed two candidates, one from each party based on each candidates technology use and policies. It is interesting to see how much of a role the internet and technology are playing in this election. Web 2.0 applications are influencing the elections, both Facebook and Myspace have multiple pages and applications related to the Presidential Campaign. Even though most high school students won't be able to vote in the fall, it is important to see how much of a role the internet will play in the way they form opinions in the future. (I am not publicly endorsing any candidate at this time, I just find it important to note the role of technology in the formation of public opinion).

Watch Michael Arrington's, the president of Tech Crunch, appearance on Fox and Friends in the video below. (I am not publicly endorsing any candidate at this time, I just find it important to note the role of technology in the formation of public opinion).
