An Internet-savvy Public Advocate for NYC?

“Forget the mayor’s race tomorrow,” they’re saying.  Britt Blaser,
Micah Sifry, and other good people have been working on an interesting
campaign to get
people to turn out in NYC for a downballot race.  Their man is
Andrew Rasiej; he calls himself the “Johnny Appleseed” of technology and politics, he and his team have been organizing like crazy in
cyberspace, and he’s all for open wi-fi in NYC.  An interesting test to see if a concerted
effort  of the very tech-savvy can affect the outcome of an
important, but super low-turnout, race.
