I’m working with a team on an experimental political web site called iCount.com. We’ve done a soft launch and are getting some traffic from Google. There are big plans for this site (inspired by the Dean campaign, Meetup.com, MoveOn.org, and other cool and effective political sites) and motivated by a love for the greatest democratic nation in the history of the world, and a hope to keep it that way. (Our voter turnout is horrendous–13% in our recent Utah Republican primary, and politics has become a top-down raise-money-and-spend-it-on-tv-ads game that is sickening to watch.) Many Americans just don’t care and don’t think they can make a difference. Our long term goal is to help individuals organize themselves effectively and make a difference on issues that matter most to them.
