Throwback Thursday – #tbt – @ryanmeili Embraces Latest in “Poli-Techs” Once Again With Facebook Live Event #skpoli #skndpldr

Since he first ran for the leadership of the Sask NDP nearly a decade ago, Ryan Meili has been incredibly adept at harnessing new technologies to achieve political goals.

As a general rule, I’m not a conspiracy theorist as I often find the musings of people who are so inclined pretty illogical, far-fetched, and outlandish. But I also find them entertaining in a “Inspired by a True Story” kind of way.  Plus, occasionally something happens that makes you wonder if you’re getting the full […]

A Few Thoughts On @BernieSanders Use of Technology #feelthebern #primaryday #newyork

So today was a pretty big day in the United States as born and raised Brooklyn boy, Bernie Sanders went up against adopted hometown gal, Hillary Clinton in the New York primary in their ongoing battle to secure the Democratic Party nomination. As someone who’s very interested in the use of digital technology and social media in politics, I […]

Yay For Meaningless Internet Points! #feelthebern #whichhillary

I occasionally post on Reddit but most of my comments get a handful of upvotes (maybe) then disappear into obscurity. Lately, as I’ve been following the Bernie Sanders campaign from afar and knowing how much the campaign is being driven by Reddit users, I’ve been a bit more active than usual adding my theories, observations and/or snark on […]
