election day great for news web sites

07Nov08

The audience is definitely out there, and Web sites posted huge traffic on election day. I’m sure many people were doing like me and had two screens going — watching TV and checking the laptop for more detailed info.

I was at an event at the Stanford d.school (design school) last night and one instructor mentioned an idea about trying to reach audiences in this way by keeping them engaged simultaneously online and on TV. Perhaps that’s just an interim step before people drop TV altogether.
