Here’s an update on the live-blogging experiment on Thursday night using the newer software, CoverItLive. It failed the test. Unknown to me going into the debate, the CIL server slapped a limit on how many people could view the live blog. For us, I think it was something like 187 people at a time; that’s way too few for a blog like this.
So we’re going to go back to the “old” system, which is just typing in the regular blog itself, and comments can be added to the comment section. It might not be as “pretty,” but we think more people will have the opportunity to take part.
Thanks for your patience. The next presidential debate is Tuesday night and I hope you’ll see fee to join me here.
