I Voted!




I voted this morning, did you ?

The entire process was quite seamless. A house couple of blocks away was set up as the polling station. There was no queue around 8:45am this morning and everything took less than 10 minutes (including taking pictures ;).

Vote for Obama - at least my son wants me to!

This is not a political endorsement of any sort because I'm not affiliated with Democractic or Republican party, yet! However I had an interesting conversation with my 5-year old son about upcoming presidential elections. He'd like me to vote for Barack Obama because of the following 3 reasons:
  • Likes his face (and does not like McCain's)
  • Likes his name (and not McCain's)
  • Thinks he'll do the right thing for the country (because he looks like that)
Guess "Change We Can Believe In" is working :)

The conversation started because one of Obama supporters was handing out Obama button (complete range) outside the Expo Hall of San Francisco Marathon. I had gone there to pick up my shirt, bib etc. and then showed the button to my son this morning :)

Tech Crunch interviewed the candidates in January 2008 which shows their position on technology related issues.

What websites are you using to monitor your favorite candidate ? :)
