Down below you can see a note I wrote regarding debates on the Web. One thing I left out: if you record a campaign event — such as a debate — and would like to have it on the Web, send it to me (you can burn it to a CD, for example) and I’ll encode it and put it on the appropriate candidate page on the C2006 site.
For example, I know there are lots of candidate forums out there and, for the most part, if a radio reporter isn’t covering from here, we have no access to it here in the online department.
But if you have recorded it and would like to have it available, I’d be willing to provide the audio server and the encoding services.
