WhiteHouse.gov Plans State of the Union Broadcast of the Future
WhiteHouse.gov is going to provide an "enhanced" version of the State of the Union speech online, with a companion stream of charts and graphs.
It's going to be in 3D!
Just kidding. But it will be a little different. Tomorrow night, over at WhiteHouse.gov/sotu, you can watch an "enhanced" version of the State of the Union speech which, along with a live stream of Obama delivering the speech, will also have "a companion stream of visual aids, like charts and quick stats to provide context and emphasize key points."
This should provide some nice rhetorical support for Obama—and help people absorb the information he tries to communicate—but I can't help but imagine what kind of mischief Karl Rove would have wrought with this technology.
