The Web and Politics

John Heilemann hosted a panel on politics and the web with Arianna Huffington, Gavin Newsome, and Joe Trippi.

Highlights and take-aways:
  • "The Internet has killed Karl Rove politics." - Ariana
  • "The truth keeps intruding into people's rooms." - Ariana (in reference to the power of the Internet in politics)
  • The Internet medium demands authenticity from politicians.
  • Joe talked about a "" as a portal used by the President to reach out to citizens to develop policy and legislation.
  • There is no such thing as "off the record" anymore.
