Will MySpace 's Virtual Presidential Primary Result in Greater Voter Turn Out?
... and ... Will Canadian politicians step up their social networking push in the next election campaign?

These are the questions I'm wondering about. I mean, when you can create virtual events in the virtual world that younger folks are taking part in, can you drive their feeling of importance for the real event? Will people see the importance of voting? Can we reduce apathy that way? It will certainly be an interesting trial, but won't be until January 2008.

Canadians may go to the poll even sooner, and I wonder if politicians this side of the border will try to push the social networking/virtual world advertising and such in an attempt to get younger voters more engaged. I hope they at least try.
