Traveling again today so just a quick post to highlight the best blog posts I’ve seen on the Czech elections. We have clearly entered an area where committed and educated amateurs can and will, for free, produce analysis of equal or better quality than what once would have cost lots of money, either to the consumer or to the newspaper/magazine that paid them. (Yochai Benkler has some excellent analysis on the economics of social production and sharing.)
- Andrew Roberts on “The 2010 Czech Elections” in The Monkey Cage
- Sean Hanley on “What the Elections Mean” and the composition of the Czech Parliament
- RiskandForecast.com on “Major Lessons of the Czech Election”
There are a few other articles in Czech that deal nicely with key questions:
- What polling firms will do to keep from making such huge errors next time
- The difference (or lack thereof) between old “dinosaurs” and new
These say it better than I could, so for once I’ll let somebody else’s words suffice.
