Winning The Geek Vote

Howard Dean continues to impress. Today on his blog Dean took a few steps to establish his tech policy. He announced that he had assembled an advisory group of tech gurus, including our friend Larry Lessig. He released a statement of principles for the internet (vague, but promising). And he released as open source some community building software that his staff and supporters have worked on. These actions were duly noted on slashdot. One sharp /. poster pointed out that Howard Dean's web site runs on FreeBSD (an open source operating system), Wesley Clark's site is on Linux, but George W. Bush runs on Windows 2000. Those geeks don't miss much.
