Sen. Chris Dodd is making an effort to connect with the voters via the latest technology. Yesterday, Dodd used a live video stream for a live blogging session with Fire Dog Lake.
The Senator answered questions submitted by blogging in a "live" format, meaning you get to see and hear him react and answer the questions in real time. This is an outstanding concept, where the voters get to virtually meet and ask questions of the candidate. The questions were posed by the disembodied voice of Dodd staffer and MLN's own Matt Browner-Hamlin.
My only criticism was that Matt's voice was off-mic and nearly inaudible, which could cause some confusion about what the question was that the senator was answering. Chris was mic'd nicely and his audio level was fine; next time, I'd recommend they invest in a simple $40 mixer box (I've got one) and run a second mic into it for Matt's questions.
Nicely done FDL and Senator Dodd!
