Go take a look at The People Choose 2006.
Lots of new videos are being submitted. You are invited to submit your own videos covering the 2006 elections.
A couple weeks ago The Wall Street Journal wrote,
“…Video on the Web is going beyond mudslinging. It’s also beginning to help inform voters…Startup sites like thepeoplechoose2006.org and election.tv are trying to create video-rich sites that provide information on races throughout the country.”-The Wall Street Journal, 9/21/06
Go take a look.
I am on their Board, unpaid.
The other day I wrote about a new website, The People Choose 2006,
Think of it as a political YouTube for “citizen journalists” — inviting regular people around the country to submit videos you make about your local Congressional races. Anyone can go to the site and view the videos, and use them on blogs, etc. Some of these will end up broadcast nationally on Dish and DirecTV.
I mentioned one great video they had already recieved, and today I finally figured out how to post a video from The People Choose. You have to click on the “JumpCut” in the lower right corner, and if you are logged in at JumpCut you see a “Post to Website” button… They will be added this directly to The People Choose website soon. (Still working out the kinks…)
Make a video and go upload it.
And here is “Married To the Man“:
If YOU want to post this on YOUR blog, click on JumpCut on the video, log in, and click the “Post to Website” button to get the embed code. But PLEASE send people to The People Choose Site itself at http://thepeoplechoose2006.org/, not just to JumpCut.
