Winer on Dean

I agree with Tony Goodson: What a great piece by Dave Winer on Howard Dean and American Politics and the control of the media…

The man is interesting like him or not, and that’s a rarity in US politics where candidates are as exciting as toothpaste or underarm deodorant, because that’s exactly how they want us to view them, as products, not people. Enter Howard Dean, person. Bloggable to the nth degree. But did Howard Dean know what a blog was? No. Does he know what one is today? No! Did he ever have a blog? He didn’t. (I don’t mean to ask, as some people misunderstand, did he write his own weblog. I mean did his campaign have a weblog.)
