Demand Question Time
We live in a world that increasingly demands more dialogue than monologue. President Obama's January 29th question-and-answer session with Republican leaders gave the public a remarkable window into the state of our union and governing process. It was riveting and educational. The exchanges were substantive, civil and candid. And in a rare break from our modern politics, sharp differences between elected leaders were on full public display without rancor or ridicule.
This was one of the best national political debates in many years. Citizens who watched the event were impressed, by many accounts. Journalists and commentators immediately responded by continuing the conversation of the ideas put forward by the president and his opponents — even the cable news cycle was disrupted for a day.
America could use more of this — an unfettered and public airing of political differences by our elected representatives. So we call on President Barack Obama and House Minority Leader John Boehner to hold these sessions regularly — and allow them to be broadcast and webcast live and without commercial interruption, sponsorship or intermediaries. We also urge the President and the Republican Senate caucus to follow suit. And we ask the President and the House and Senate caucuses of his own party to consider mounting similar direct question-and-answer sessions. We will ask future Presidents and Congresses to do the same.

productdose.com | style/technology/design/substance: read + buy
productdose began as a weblog dedicated to filtering the numerous online choices offered to consumer product buyers. Over time we discovered that users were not only interested in exceptional products, but they also wanted buying options for those products. In order to provide a greater purchasing experience for our users, productdose developed a shopping search engine to connect editorial content to purchasing solutions. Now our readers are given a choice of multiple retail spaces where they can purchase the items they want. And we do all the leg-work!
Unlike offline magazines that rely heavily on the support of a few large consumer product companies that advertise in their pages, productdose was designed with a layer of independence between the products covered and the larger editorial agenda. Because productdose generates revenue via an integrated shopping search engine that simply refers buyers to sellers, the site doesn't need traditional advertising. There is no financial incentive for productdose to cover particular products over others, and the site lives apart from the conflict of interest that is inherent in the traditional publishing business.
We aim to provide all the information a user will need to make an intelligent purchasing decision. productdose covers the style, design, and technology trends that interest our readers, and the magazine offers in-depth reviews of consumer products that will ensure our readers get what they pay for.
We are dedicated to creating the best content and technology on the web in order to help our readers and users decipher the world of buying and researching products online.
