Wired covers the fact that the 2008 Democratic National Convention is the most covered media event in their party’s history – by bloggers!:
This year’s convention sees multiple firsts in technological innovations for the quadrennial political party gathering. For starters, the Democratic National Convention Committee is providing bloggers (and floor delegates) with “video-upload booths” where they can upload their footage to YouTube or any other online-video platform.
The DNC is using text messaging and streaming video to keep delegates (and those following along at home) up to date.
Their story also contains great hi-rez photos of the DNC setup along with discussions of other technologies and support that are in place for bloggers covering the convention.
