Obama Won, and I Didn't Even Vote

I already know that this post is going to get a lot of negative comments like the religion one. And that's because this "every vote counts" dogma that everyone loves so much shares a lot with religion. It's a belief that's held true without a single bit of compelling evidence, and it's a strong belief.

But before I get into that, let's talk about some other things.

First, Obama won and I'm happy about that. I don't think that he's a superhero like a lot of people do. When I look at his positions I disagree with most of them. I disagree with most of McCain's positions as well.

About SETT

On No Status Quo

This blog is powered by SETT, a brand new state-of-art blogging platform created by Tynan. Unlike traditional Wordpress blogs, SETT provides a lot more opportunity for reader interaction.

Do you see the Community link at the top of this page? That's where any one of you can create your own posts and share them with the rest of my readers. If your posts are good, I'll immediately promote them to the front page of this blog so that your ideas get even more exposure.

The community section of SETT takes reader participation to a whole new level. In traditional blogs the reader is only allowed to leave comments at the end of each post (which usually don't get read anyway). On SETT, however, readers get their own section of the blog in which ideas can spread beyond what's possible on traditional blogs. Check out the community of Tynan's blog to see what it looks like when the audience gets involved.

Every post and every comment on SETT can be voted up or down using the arrows on the top lefthand corner. That way you can let the author know whether they're doing a good job and provide feedback with just one click. Over time as more people vote the unpopular comments will sink to the bottom, while the good ones will stay on the top.

Another thing worth mentioning is how well SETT handles comments. Multiple nested comments look fabulous on SETT, and there's usually a lot more discussion going on as well. When you reply to someone in a traditional blog, in most cases they'll never even see your comment. However, on SETT the person you're responding to will be notified via email so that they know about your response and the discussion can continue.
