I got a great email from Blogher Jory today announcing their co-sponsorship of 10Questions:
… a new, non-partisan “People powered presidential forum” hosted by TechPresident.com, in cooperation with the New York Times and MSNBC.com and many of your favorite websites and blogs.
Here’s how it works: you post a short video asking candidates a question, vote on your fave videos, top 10 get picked, candidates answer your video questions with their own video, public decides if they actually answered the question.
Here’s why it was especially cool to get this from Blogher: the Democratic YouTube debate showed an obvious majority of men submitting/asking the questions. What gives? Last time I checked the Interwebs liked girlies too…
No offense to the dudes, but as a female voter I want answers to (what often appear to be…) female questions. Healthcare, education, humanitarian issues, poverty… I get that most voters are concerned with these, but in my experience not nearly as much.
