Notes from Elizabeth Edwards questions.
Listening to Elizabeth Edwards talk about the magic of the medium and how we don’t sep. ourselves in this medium as we do in RL.
She has dealt with all the issues of blogging while not having her own blog. She writes her own diary entries on the Edwards size.
“He’s come a long way since his days on a Southern Baptist pew.
She believes in actually answering questions.
Feels John is more supportive of “women’s issues” than Hillary Clinton.
Universal healthcare is a key issue , childcare also.
Birth to death education is another significant education.
Youth need to feel their voice is heard in order to want to participate. One Corps per local level. Larger issues at national Iraq. Global warming. Darfur. Operation engage (young people who do not go to college.)
Iraq as a woman’s issue. Women serving in Iraq – 10%. Fiancee.
Didn’t mention the civilian casualties. Although she did mention that if mother’s were in charge, there would be no war.
Also talked about the class divide in the military.
Medium consolidation and Telecom Act of 1996 – John doesn’t want Rupert Murdoch to be the gatekeeper of information. She recognizes the uniformity.
Net neutrality is important. (See Laura Scott on Blogher Ads.)
No one person should be the sieve through whom all information flows.
Trails of following from one blog to another.

People dye their hair purple in order to stand out in a very crowded world.
Howard Dean is right…. we need a campaign in all 50 states.
From audience member: “?” Religious liberal. Reclaiming the F word. F is for faith.
Doesn’t believe in an intervening God he (or she) does not think her prayers for intervention about cancer will have any effect.
Renewing their vows on Monday. Service was a part of their vows.
No one edits her posts, sees her posts…..
