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.
