The Election Connection Moblog is Back

Starting next week, we will resume the experiment of covering Campaign 2004 via mobile photo Web log. The Wireless Election Connection (I've also put a link on the right rail) fires up at the Democratic Convention in Boston, using four students from the University of South Carolina and four from Boston. They'll not only be patrolling Boston, but they'll be in the convention hall, looking for those telling moments that add richness and context to the limited view available through traditional media.

The idea is that through literally hundreds of these insightful moments during the week, a larger, richer mosaic emerges.

Since we tried this during the S.C. Democratic Primary in February (see Primary Moblog), we've been able to make some improvements, so we'll see how it goes.

As I did then, I'll be blogging the blog throughout the week as newsflow editor (think senior producer or managing editor, in traditional newsrooms). Please post your comments. They'll be very valuable.
