Are political parties obsolete?

Nancy White did a fantastic job taking notes at various panels throughout SXSW interactive this year. In her write up of my second panel, Are Political Parties Obsolete?, she definitely captured the gist of most of what we were saying up on the stage.
I plan to do a few retrospective posts here once I get home and chew over my experiences a bit more, and I’ll be posting about the activist-technology track specifically over at PDF.
