Don’t Forget to Vote

If you’re a res­i­dent of a Super Tues­day state, we hope you can find some time to pull the lever tomor­row. Also, we hope you’ll for­give (at least) one more polit­i­cal post before Super Tues­day. What­ev­er your polit­i­cal affil­i­a­tions, the video below is a com­pelling exam­ple of new media at work. Accord­ing to the New York Times’ polit­i­cal blog, the lead singer of the Black Eyed Peas round­ed up 30 or so celebri­ties and put togeth­er this video set to the sound­track of Barack Oba­ma’s con­ces­sion speech in New Hamp­shire. Because the group worked for free and edit­ed the video on their own, they turned the project around in two days. The effect is pow­er­ful (and the video is added to our YouTube Playlist). You can see Oba­ma’s orig­i­nal speech here.
