If you haven’t checked out the Democratic and Republican National Conventions websites – you should. Both parties have spent months developing online content and researching technology in order to make the conventions accessible.
The Dems are in full swing, with live streaming video of the convention, full text of all the speeches, photos, and an aggregated feed from the 120 blogs credentialed at the event. There’s also a Town Hall section where you can submit video and text questions that will be answered by elected officials.
The Republican site is still progressing ahead of their Sept. 1 start date. But there are videos, a list of speakers and a time lapse video of preparations at the convention center.
