Comparing Campaigns: Tech Perspective

With the primary season drawing to a close, I decided to try to
subscribe to both John McCain’s and Barack Obama’s blogs tonight. I like
to use the RSS feeds, since any open-source reader can use them. Obama
was a snap; his RSS feed was right there at the top of the blog. McCain
was a different story. I spent 15 min. staring at the page, then
searching it, and never found a link to the RSS feed. I found feeds for
each category, but that seemed untenable; I want all the news! I gave up.

Also, I noted McCain’s website uses Microsoft’s ASP (ick); I couldn’t
figure out what Obama’s site used. If anybody knows, I’d be curious.
