I have been meaning to write about this since the election was over, but I just haven’t had time to do it. I can at least present some links that can help you gain a better understanding of the impact the web had on the election. Here they are:
From TechPresident: Le Internet Campaign
From e.politics: French Election Shows the Limits of User-Generated Content
From Dessine Moi Le Web 2.0: How web 2.0 impacted the french presidential campaign and helped Sarkozy enter Elysees 1.0?
Inconclusive - yeah! The more exciting it is!
