Them's Fighting Words

Speaking of the equalization phenomenon and the Internet, tomorrow is the showdown between Virtualpolitik pal James Kotecki of and mainstream media news source MSNBC which has been issuing a series of bizarre challenges to his upstart web-based punditry. He's not yet made it on to their MSNBC search engine but Kotecki claims to be slated for the Thursday show.

Kotecki, who began by creating YouTube videos addressed to the presidential candidates from his Georgetown dorm room, has thus far had a career that capitalizes on the non-hierarchical nature of many online networks.

Kotecki will also be speaking to my Digital Rhetoric class in Fall.

Update: Here's the footage of the match-up.
