In today's installment I summarize some of our recent key postings as well as provide a quick take on Newsvine's new ElectionVine portlet. Instead of just providing the traditional "talking head" I have provided most of this with (**echo chamber, please**) picture-in-picture narrative. If you shoot up your player's resolution to max the screen grabs are pretty readable, so it should be kind of a fun experience. Windows-based video technologies leave something to be desired, but we're wrestling it to the ground step by step. Enjoy!
