Napster’s Sean Parker Wants You to Vote

With Brigade Media, a startup launched earlier this year, Parker and other Silicon Valley backers want to create a network focused on citizen engagement and political life. Brigade is still under development, but its developers hope to fundamentally alter the way citizens organize politically. Brigade acquired Causes.com and Votizen in June, two websites that also seek to boost civic engagement. State and local elections will be a primary focus for the venture, says Brigade president James Windon, formerly of Causes.com. “What we want to do is help people understand how significant state and local offices are,” Windon says. “A lot of people don’t know what the offices are or what they do. Even if they know what they are, they don’t know who the candidates are or what they stand for.”

        Communicate to Code

        “Programming rests firmly on the foundation of math and logic. Writing is bound by an inconsistent and evolving set of rules. The electronic mind of the machine is coldly unforgiving when executing a buggy program, while essays riddled with problems are published constantly without any major issues.

        Superficially, these two activities don’t seem all that related; however, I think that programming and writing actually have a lot in common, and that by practicing one you will improve at the other and more.”
