iPod + Congress

IPac, the Intellectual Property Action Committee, has launched an interesting campaign called the Congressional iPod Education fund.
It seems they were inspired by “Senator Stevens, the 82-year old [U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation] chairman from Alaska, [who announced] that his daughter had bought him an iPod, and suddenly Stevens had a much greater understanding of the many ways innovative technology can create choice for consumers.

That’s why we think all Senators ought to join Stevens’ esteemed company as iPod owners.”

The group aims to buy a video iPod for the campaigns of Senators who work on legislation affecting technology and “pre-load each one with examples of the cultural richness made possible by sharing and collaboration.” The iPods will be engraved with the words “listen to the people.”
