Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.
Via Wonkette, here's a slightly unfair but powerful rejoinder to President Bush's jokes about weapons of mass destruction. Media is in the hands of everyone, and people are going to use it to hold powerful people -- including media people, such as the Washington correspondents who found Bush's performance so hilarious -- to account.
People seem to really be embracing web video as a medium and it definitely delivers the message at a different level than text. Very interesting to see how this form develops.

I think your post also hints at the Internet's inevitable annexation of TV and the impact that might have on elections. For now, web videos seem like a good countermeasure against the advertising industry and its reluctance to allow the abandonment of passive, sequential access entertainment.

As for the joke, it's inane. I can only assume that George is a moron or that his administration is unraveling. Maybe both.
