Now that the Summer Games are over, political coverage will become inescapable.  Some people are bound to embrace it, though, and these folks should appreciate new offerings from Google Mobile and YouTube.

A fresh Google Mobile site is intended to let users keep up to date in a fairly limited sense.  It provides links to McCain and Obama search results, the official McCain and Obama YouTube channels, and McCain and Obama news stories.  Google Reader and Google Maps ("find your way around the convention cities") get tossed in the mix as well.  Think of this as a last resort for no-laptop situations.

YouTube Convention Channel
 YouTube’s 2008 Conventions Channel

YouTube’s offering is a little more interesting.  Even as video from the convention is set to take over so many television stations tonight, the 2008conventions channel aims to be extra thorough.  According to the YouTube Blog, "We’ll . . . have upload booths set up around the Pepsi Center and Convention Hall, not to mention in the Big Tent, where all the bloggers will congregate for the week.  Video will be pouring in from these locations and hundreds of others . . ."

Rich Peters, who won YouTube’s Democratic Convention contest, will also be on the prowl.  And as Chris Crum noted on Friday, you’ll be able to see still more coverage courtesy of Digg.

Tune into all this hoopla or ignore it and catch up on some reading as you please.
