Here's my eighth DNC video blog report: Participatory Democracy.
[ QuickTime 5 MB ]
Thursday night, the last night of the DNC convention, I went into Cambridge to check out the Final Hurrah of Participatory Democracy.
The New York Times said Participatory Democracy "presents the election process as a farce and freedom of choice as a crapshoot."
In this video I interview some of the artists who produced the show, take a look at some of the unusual voting machines and hear about the Kerry/Bush Cookie Bake-Off.
In the end balloons came down, a winner was announced and a good time was had by all. I haven't included the balloon drop so as not to upstage the Democtratic balloon drop.
I'm also hesitant to include all the footage of the counts from each voting machine since when I add them up I come up up with a different winner than the one that was annouced to the crowd.
This might require me to do further interviews and research for a investigative report. ;-)
