Obama vs. McCain in Tech Policy Smackdown

This event sounds like a lot of fun — a live “tech policy smackdown” between spokespeople for the respective campaigns of Barack Obama and John McCain. Among the topics discussed will be one of our favorites, network neutrality. Be sure to tune in TOMORROW, Thursday, Oct. 30, at 12:25 p.m. Eastern, or 9:25 a.m. Pacific, to catch the fireworks.

I’ve not met nor heard McCain spokesperson Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who is listed as “the campaign’s chief economic policy adviser.” But he’ll have his hands full sparring verbally with former FCC chairman Hundt, who always seems ready to get it on with policy opponents.

While it’s doubtful that the event will change any voting minds, it should make for good theater — of course as smackdown afficionados we’ll be tuned in via the tubes.
