Missing the Point & Missing the Convention
If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I'm a pretty avid follower of what's been going on on the Web relating to the presidential election.
Last night, just for kicks I wanted to see what was happening each night at the convention. As I want to catch some of it live, I figured that going to the Web site for the convention would give me that information. It was easy enough to find the site, www.demconvention.com, but that's where the fun stopped.
I defy you to find a day-by-day schedule on this site anywhere. Now maybe it's me, but isn't that pretty much the whole point of the convention — bringing the public into the Democratic process???
If I were designing this site, it seems to me that I would make the first priority a big huge honking schedule somewhere pretty noticeable. And I'd make it pretty obvious how to sign up for daily e-mail or text updates from the convention.
Am I the only one thinking this way?
