Charlottesville–Right Now: “Blogfather” Jerome Armstrong on the future of the Democratic party in the digital age

The Internet helped propel the Howard Dean campaign into financial success, and Jerome Armstrong says the next successful presidential candidate will build on Dean’s success with the blogosphere. In 2001, Armstrong started the political blog MyDD, which inspired other Democrats to take up the practice. He’s written a book with Markos Moulitas (the guy behind Daily KoS) called Crashing the Gate: Grassroots, Netroots and the Rise of People Powered Politics. Armstrong is also working with former governor Mark Warner’s Forward Together PAC. He spoke to Coy Barefoot on the June 6 edition of WINA’s Charlottesville–Right Now about the future of the Democratic party in a digital age.
