From the original about page:
This election cycle we've seen many attempts to integrate technology and politics. Over the summer, YouTube and CNN hosted a Democratic presidential debate where ordinary people submitted video questions to the candidates, the final selection of which fell to CNN. Many were critical of CNN/YouTube's decision to exclude user feedback in selecting questions. In response, a group of YouTube users rallied around a mashup called www.CommunityCounts.us, which allowed users to vote for questions to be asked.
The site worked. Thousands of people watched and rated the nearly 3,000 videos that were submitted for the first YouTube debate. As a result, Community Counts caught the eye of national news media, including the New York Times and techPresident. Several of the candidates answered the site's top questions after the CNN/YouTube debate was over.
Following the debate, techPresident decided to join forces with Community Counts' creator, David Colarusso, to launch a new kind of forum for the internet age, something that would take greater advantage of what the internet has to offer. Building on Community Counts' backbone and its success, we are happy to offer 10Questions to you and the world.
