Well, it looks like the midterm election campaign this year will also be fought in cyberspace. A lot of senatorial candidates already have websites that showcase their grandstanding achievements. Some even have entries in Wikipedia, the leading “contributor-generated” encyclopedia that gets millions of hits daily.

Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

In the past few weeks, my Gmail account has been receiving emails from certain “Kawal ng Mamamayang Pilipino” that contains propaganda information about the alleged corruption in the AFP. Those emails could be coming from one of the Oakwood mutineers who is also running for the Senate. Will this mean that my mailbox will suffer more SPAM from the others that have started to brush up their campaigns on the ‘net?

What’s next? Senatoriables as TXTMates?
