Recently www.digg.com the popular source of news for geeks has been taken over by John McCain and Barack Obama. Its understood as many of the diggers are from the states and the presidential election is of high concern.
This election is different in many ways compaired to the rest; in a sense that the internet has played a major role in influensing hot tops. www.digg.com is no excuse. For the rest of us I guess it's important too. As 'who wins' does matter and will influense our lives too. Maybe this is one reason why the topic is hot and so many follow these news.
Talking of election our own local election is due soon too. It's not so compatitive as I assumed it would be which is/was a bit of a disappointment. My only request to who ever wins is "don't f*ck us up"! It's short but that's all I have to say on the topic.
