Americablog: What Al Gore's been up to
If you're watching Bill Maher, Graydon Carter, Editor of Vanity Fair, brought up a speech Al Gore has been giving around the country for the last few years. It's about global warming. I had the privilege, and I say that with all sincerity, of seeing it live. He recently gave a short version of the presentation at a conference and you can see it here. Scroll down below the player and click on his image on the right.

It's tagged Current TV, but he doesn't spend much time talking about it. He talks a little bit about the forces of change in the media landscape, defends a free Internet, consumer generated media (blogs and Current) and then (about 1/3 way through) he gets into global warming.

It's a fascinating presentation which is poorly captured here. This video doesn't show that Gore's presentation was much more like a Steve Jobs keynote than a politician's speech. If you want to see what I think that a Presidential stump speech is going to look like in the future, watch it.
