"An e-campaign for the man who infamously claimed to have invented the Internet had best court the technologically savvy voter, and www.algore2000.com has made some smart moves in that department. The site and servers use Linux, Apache and a variety of free, customized administrative tools such as PHP, an open source language."
"View the home page source code and you'll get a friendly hidden message from Al Gore himself: "Thanks for checking out our source code! ... The fact that you are peeking behind the scenes at our site means you can make an important difference to this Internet effort."
"It's a simple way to give a private hello to all those $100,000-a-year code slingers, but Gore Webmaster Ben Green, speaking from the campaign's Nashville, Tenn., headquarters, says it's not a political act. The Gore online strategy is heavily tilted toward wooing the tech-savvy voter."
