For the first time ever, grassroots bloggers will be broadcasting video, pictures and text updates straight from the floor of the Democratic National Convention using their mobile phones and Zannel, the instant media network that used for lifecasting, micro-blogging, and as a mobile social network.
The Democratic National Convention has accredited a select number of state-based bloggers with floor access during the entire convention. Fourteen of these bloggers, representing every region of the US, are contributing to Zannelâ€™s PoliticsBlue community channel (or text DEM to 58888 to view on mobile) from the convention through Election Day. By leveraging Zannelâ€™s mobile platform, they will be able to instantly share their convention coverage with their blogâ€™s readers, the Zannel community, and to the blogging and social networks to which Zannel syndicates content.
