Today I see that Gaper's Block is looking at local Chicago videos on YouTube especially as they relate to the municipal elections to be held next month. There are some good ones and this post from Gaper's Block gives us the best and the worst that they have found around the bloggosphere. Most of these candidates or citizens who are not associated with any particular aldermanic campaign that you see at the Block do good work.
I want to show you this video of a nice drive around the 3rd Ward of Chicago. This video looks at the ward of Alderman Dorothy Tillman and it's pretty good. The main thing is, it tells a story, and that it does. Take a look...
I do hope what we are seeing is a general trend. You can get out a message using the internet. You might need to still get out there and knock on doors, but as long as people are computer saavy out there and internet surfers are actually searching for you, this is the kind of stuff worth doing. And the way I can look at it, it shouldn't cost a lot of change. Though I hope if any of you ever post a video for an election campaign I hope you make it as professional as possible.
I had a couple of articles I wanted to post but I won't. Everytime I wanted to get started I just wasn't getting it right. Perhaps you'll see these posts tomorrow. Haven't decided, but you can check out my links in del.icio.us. You might see a couple of them in there although you will have to guess at them.
And for this story a hat-tip to What the Helen. Good day!
