A lot of social media and politics stories in the news. Republicans launched AmericaSpeakingOut.com to “increase dialogue between Americans and Congress.” The site apparently uses a new Microsoft platform for political efforts.
YouCut is making headlines; The project is designed to let users vote on what spending projects to cut. (It’s not at www.YouCut.com, by the way, which involves Christmas trees.) I was a little surprised at Colin Delany’s take on YouCut.
