Starting at 5 p.m. I’ll be live-blogging Super Tuesday results. It’s a bit of an experiment with a new piece of software we got called Cover It Live. This is what The Stranger’s been using. In fact, Eli Sander’s is quoted on the company’s website giving this endorsement: “It’s liveblogging heaven.”
I hope he’s right. But I need your help to make it work. The great thing about this is you can add your live comments to the thread. It looks more like a live chat session than a blog post. (I will be approving comments, though.)
I hope you’ll join me as you watch returns and help me identify interesting trends, dumb things TV anchors say, give your predictions or mourn the loss of your candidate.
One special feature tonight will be reports on the Idaho caucus. University of Washington professor David Domke is in Idaho today with a team of students who will be blogging on what our northwest neighbors are doing. I will be posting reports from Idaho and, I hope, some photos.
We can also do quick polls of what commenters are thinking.
It should be fun. See you here at 5 p.m.
