TFS Announces 2014 Election Project and Google Hangout Plan
Having recently completed Blue With Envy: My American Journey with Manchester City and been offered the opportunity to write another book (this time in monograph form) on a historical topic, I have developed a longer-form writing and research bug which I would like to translate to Florida-related subjects.
With this in mind The Florida Squeeze has decided to announce that we will be publishing our own ebooks, including a work by myself and Ryan Ray looking at the inner workings of the Florida Democratic Party and its impact on the 2014 gubernatorial, cabinet and legislative elections. Other topics related to Florida political history and economics are being explored by our writers.
Today we are also announcing that we’ll be hosting periodical live Google Hangouts (which will instantly upload to YouTube for on-demand viewing) during the election season bringing together academics, activists and elected officials to discuss the pertinent political and policy issues of the time.
In the last six months I have hosted or participated in multiple Google Hangouts. What I have discovered in the process is that it is the most interactive way to create live and on demand programming that can appeal to a broad audience and engage the viewers. Check out the TFS Google + page, which we will also begin to use to distribute videos and photos from third party sites that do not require a full news story.
Thanks to all our readers for their continued support. We look forward to bringing these new ideas to you as we continue to grow the content and scope of this website.
