Technology Behind the US Election 2008

Category: InternetTeknovis @ 5:37 am

I have stayed up very late to watch the US election, and it is now clear who the winner is! However, I do not want to get into politics in this blog!

From a technology point-of-view, I am amazed how much attention the mainstream media has given to the online election campaigns. In particular, I am sure that every viewer must now be aware of Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. Also, the winner thanked his supporters by email before making his first public appearance!

It will be very interesting to see some statistics from the main news web sites over the next few days regarding how busy their web servers were. I would expect some records!
