TechCrunch has the scoop on the MySpace Presidential primary that will be held in January of 2008. I’ve signed up for like 5 accounts over the years for various projects so I assume I get to vote 5 times. Awesome. I predict a victory by Ron Paul.
Mike Turk takes the scapel to another Republican Presidential campaign website. Turk deserves credit for coming up with creative ways of saying “this website is kind of horrible” over and over again.

HP executive Eric Kintz provides a nice breakdown of some of the flaws with Second Life as a marketing platform.
