Digital Punch – Episode_22 – Show Summary
Hello boys and girls, welcome to Digital Punch, sponsored this week by I’m your host Benjamin Nelson coming to you from Chicago. In this episode we’ll talk about the CNN/YouTube presidential debates, a cool new toy and read some of your questions/comments. Episode 22 has begun.Well, it looks like viral video and Web 2.0 has finally gone mainstream. Last week was the CNN/YouTube Democratic Presidential debates. Where average viewers like you could upload a video asking any candidate a question. The questions ranged from serious, to funny to outrageous, but we thought it was awesome because the candidates finally had to answer the types of questions you and I would ask.Now on September 16th the Republicans will be holding their CNN/YouTube debate. There have been some rumors that some of the top tier Republican candidates are going to skip out on this event, and we say that’s a perfect way to alienate people like us. Way to go!If you’d like to see the questions that the Democrats had to answer, or would like to submit a video question to a Republican candidate, head on over to and we’ll provide you with all the links you need.For those who ever thought, “Man, little kids have it way to easy!” and “Why can’t babies work?”, designer Kristina Andersson might have a solution for you.Check out this design concept for a kiddie riding vacuum. Essentially small children will be lured into chipping in with the house work while thinking they are having a good time. GOTCHA BABIES! HAAA!!!Excuse me. Don’t know where that came from. As of right now the concept design is without controls to accelerate or brake, so it’s either one of those kiddie push along toys, or a robotic vacuum cleaner like the Roomba. Stay tuned.If you’d like to be a guest host on our show, just send an email to with “Digital Punch Co-Host” in the subject line.Well, that’ll do it for this episode of Digital Punch. Thanks to Chris Quinn and Cene Ketchem for their help with this episode.
