"No experiment can be more interesting than that we are now trying, and which we trust will end in establishing the fact, that man may be governed by reason and truth. Our first object should therefore be, to leave open to him all the avenues to truth. The most effectual hitherto found, is the freedom of the press. It is, therefore, the first shut up by those who fear the investigation of their actions." --Thomas Jefferson to John Tyler, 1804.

New tool

Believe it was from Idaho . . . activist? not sure what label to put on him these days . . . . Dennis Mansfield, some years ago, we first heard about YouTube, when he suggested that this new thing might have some real impact in politics. That was a couple of years before, well, it did. Obviously in recent years, it has.

Today he (with his son Colin) are up (on Mansfield’s site) with a new tool called Screenr.

It uses Twitter to very quickly and easily post videos.

Not sure we’ve absorbed yet what it’s capable of. But it sure looks like something to keep a watch on. And the political possibilities seem very real.
