My Vote for President of the Internets

It annoys me when a website demands registration before you can post a comment. Fine, whatever. I’ll just move on without leaving the comment in most cases.

TechRepublic was especially rude about it though. That site let me sit there and write out my whole post before letting me know I’d have to register before it accepted. That’s just fucking rude.

Not to mention the fact that this registration was a whole damn survey, not just name and email address. Forget that.

Anyway, I’m posting here with my vote and the comment I had intended to leave there.

Who would you vote for as President of the Internet?

Tempted to vote for Molly, but I have to go for Cory Doctorow.

I watched his speech at the O’Reilly Tools of Change for Publishing conference in NYC earlier this year and was completely blown away. This guy *gets* technology and how it ties into policy more than anyone else. That’s who I’d want as president of the internet.

You can vote on this yourself at TechRepublic.

Leo LaPorte won.
LaPorte forms his government’s cabinet.
