Elections make or break any group that is involved in it; they either make kings or paupers. So, given how important the process in when it comes to governance and leadership throughout the world, no matter how big or small a group is, it is noteworthy to look at how technology affects it. As with most endeavors out there, modern gadgets and gizmos are able to make our efforts, well, more effortless. That’s the whole point of technology, after all: to make life easier for us all the while broadening our reach toward one another. And it is honestly a beautiful thing despite how some use it for nefarious purposes.

Election Campaign

So, given the fast-paced way with which we conduct our business in this era, election campaigns are no exemption to that. The question is: how exactly can technology help us with this? Well, for one, it affords any candidate to opportunity and capability to check and see what voters are yearning for. That way, his or her platforms would perfectly match the people’s, which brings the candidate closer to them. This particular benefit that comes from technological innovations is truly valuable, as not only does it help you hear and see what’s going on around you throughout your campaign, but it allows you to gain the much needed information you have to make use of in developing your platforms.

Secondly, it allows you to get in touch with your potential voters. There is no better way to garner those treasured votes other than to directly communicate with the people you could be leading come Election Day. As such, it’s that personal touch you give towards your people that makes a good leader.

It is, of course, not all about the voters if we’re being completely honest. Technological tools allow any candidate to survey the competition, thus giving them the capability to develop their own side and provide counterpoints to what their opponents may be brewing, and this goes to show that a candidate can be more prepared than ever before.

Of course, all this wouldn’t be possible if you don’t have a system that can handle your campaign trail’s activities. And this is where quality, top-notch peripherals and tools come into play. Take into account your desktop monitor: you can’t run in an election half-cocked, so you should make sure that you get to see all the information in front of you with clarity and vivid detail.

Now, there are a lot of monitor brands and units out there, so you just have to choose which one suits your campaign best. To do that, you have to check for monitor features like resolution and syncing to ensure that you’re getting what you need. Of course, we won’t get to the specifics here. For that, we have the ultimate guide in monitors, Gamingbuff. You can check out more reviews here to aid you in selecting the perfect technological tool that will land you that much coveted spot after the elections. Happy trails!

With a name like Wales Elects 2007 this site was always going to have a limited shelf life and now that Wales has (sort of) elected it is a natural time for things here to be wrapped-up. However, I am currently developing a new site along similar lines and will post the details of it in the next few days.

In the meantime here are a number of posts that have caught my eye over the past few days:

  • Alwyn Ap Huw on the marginality of constituencies, the possiblity of another election and the idea of a directly elected First Minister.
  • Conservative candidate for Ceredigion Trefor Jones on the end of his campaign and the problem with leaflets.
  • Ordivicius on Plaid’s broad church.
  • Conservative leader Nick Bourne AM on Letwin’s shift from aneconocentric paradigm to a sociocentric paradigm.
  • Luke Young on the rise of the BNP and on the Lib Dem disharmony.
  • David Davies MP on the failure of PR.
  • Leighton Andrews AM on why he is unimpressed with the Welsh blogosphere, Blamerbell on why he is wrong and Chanticleer on the withering of the Welsh blog.
  • Arsembly writes the obits for those who didn’t make it back.
  • New AM Bethan Jenkins on ‘coming back down to earth’ after the election.
  • Former AM Glyn Davies prepares to take on Lembit in Montgomeryshire.
  • Nicholas Michael Morgan calls for Janet Ryder AM to make way for Dafydd Wigley.
  • Blamerbell looks back at the quotes from the election campaign and atthe prospects for a coalition.

Wales shared National Trust Love Wales's video. ...

Seeing bottlenose dolphins in their natural habitat is a magical experience. Mwnt in Ceredigion is one of the best places to spot them in Wales, often seen swimming, playing and feeding in the bay below.

This spectacular close-up video was captured by Janet Baxter photography on a Cardigan Bay Marine Wildlife Centre survey trip at Mwnt last week.

Wales shared Katie Quinn's Trip To Wales! Outdoor Adventures, Festivals & Food. ...

I wasn't sure what to expect from a trip to Wales, England's neighbor a fellow country in the United Kingdom. Turns out, WALES IS AWESOME. It was a quick long weekend trip, and I found myself wishing we could stay longer. We just skimmed the surface on things to do there, though what we did experience was pretty epic.

We explored as much of North Wales as possible, starting the weekend off in Portmeirion, which is home to Festival No. 6 -- a music, poetry, art and food festival in the woods! It was awesome.

The next day we went to Zip World and adventured in the outdoors: zip-lining and going on an alpine coaster! Both were exhilarating and a ton of fun. We closed out the trip in Llandudno, a quaint beach town, before hopping a train back down to London.

The trip was awesome, we highly recommend you go. On top of it all, the Welsh people we met were very kind and clearly proud of their country, which is always cool to see.

For more information about the things we did (including some things I didn't show in the video):
