Announcing techPresident's Politickr

BY Joshua Levy | Monday, June 25 2007

Are you tired of constantly checking the candidates' blogs or consulting your feed reader to stay on top of their activities and whereabouts? Wishing there was a place where all of that info is aggregated in one spot? Well, so were we. That's why present to you techPresident's Politickr. Politickr is a new feature that combines official blog posts, news feeds, photo streams, and video posts from the declared and prospective 2008 presidential candidates (plus some unannounced wild cards and third-party sites) and presents them side by side.

Not only is Politickr a handy way to view news and posts from the candidates in a single glance, but it also makes it easy to for you to subscribe to any of those content streams. It also features word frequency clouds that are generated by a content analysis of candidates' and parties' blogs and news feeds. Some interesting discoveries so far: the word "Dad" is one of Mitt Romney's most popular; Joe Biden uses the phrase "hawkeye state" about as often as he uses "Joe Biden."

Go to http://www.techpresident.com/politickr to check it out. Feel free to send us your comments and suggestions, and stay tuned for more features.

A big thanks to Michael Whitney, who developed the Politickr idea, and to Shai Sachs for his development help.
