The Internet Constituency

David Weinberger (author, blogger) proudly proclaims he’s a Dean volunteer (I hadn’t heard this before, and it’s just one more sign that the Internet cognoscenti will increasingly coalesce around Governor Dean’s campaign) in his article about how poorly the various presidential candidates are using the Internet (with one exception, that will come as no surprise to readers of this blog):

The Internet Constituency

The Republic of the Internet certainly has been downgraded since the day John Perry Barlow declared its independence in 1996. The Internet is not a nation, it’s not a state, and it’s not even a county. But is it at least a constituency? If so, most of the presidential candidates are campaigning there about as seriously as they are in Alaska: it’ll be surprising if their campaign plane alights there even to refuel…with one encouraging exception.
