Wanna Be presidents

There’s a new site of interest to any political junky. It’s called Wanna be presidents. WBP is a dynamic blogroll of all of the blogs of the 2008 presidential hopefuls — or at least those that are officially running. Read the latest from all the candidates in one place. Nicely done!

The site was put together by David Silver, professor of media studies at University of San Francisco, and his colleagues at Sociedad de las Indias Electrónicas, a group of Spanish technology activists in Madrid, using a tool called Feevy. With Feevy, you can repurpose the RSS from all of your favorite blogs and display the collected dynamic content on your site. Try it out, but don’t forget to read FGI’s aggregator “In other news…”!
