The Guardian’s blogs editor, Kevin Anderson, was kind enough to pay me a visit today in San Diego as he prepares to begin his tour across America covering the presidential election. Needless to say, recent events have made the state of local and regional economies a bigger part of the conversation he hopes to have with people as he makes his way east.
As always, Kevin’s taking advantage of a set of cool tools, starting with a GPS receiver that continuously tracks his location. A pretty handy device when you plan to travel 4,000 miles between now and the election. As we drove back from lunch he was taking a picture with a GPS enabled camera phone of an SUV with Texas plates and a McCain/Palin sticker, driving along a San Diego freeway.
Good luck in that Kia, Kevin!
