Debate 2.0

Last week during the presidential debate, the country was a-twitter.  There were a bunch of sites doing some sort of realtime web 2.0 shows of the debate, with a lot of these using twitter and hashtags.  If anyone knows of any sites that I haven’t listed below, please let me know

We had the TV, a couple of laptops, and a few bottles of wine going and it turned out to be great fun.

My favorite site was definitely Current’s Hack the Debate  It displays the video/audio of the debate, as well as real time tweets that are tagged with #current.  This is where I’ll be spending most of my time.

Twitter weighs in with http://election.twitter.com/

#tweetdebate was an experiment to use twitter to track in real time who is winning, this is tracked using search.twitter.com.  See the site for rules.

I’m cooking dinner / having wine for the VP debate tonight with some friends. Follow us up on twitter if you want to join in on the fun.
