LIVE-GIFFING THE 2012 DEBATES!
This Wednesday evening marks the first presidential debate for the 2012 American elections. Elevating the discourse as only Tumblr can, we’ll have a crack team of GIF artists cranking out instant animations of the best debate moments, from zingers to gaffes to awkward silences. Flooding the GIF zone will be our own Topherchris, as well as Bobby Finger, Lacey Micallef, and Mr. GIF. And joining us to further enhance our coverage will be the fine folks at the Guardian, whose liveblog will bring you the full stories behind the GIFs.
The place to take it all in will be the purpose-built Gifwich live-GIFfing blog. Fair warning: Follow Gifwich at your own risk! After all, once each debate begins, your Dashboard could be flooded with animations on a minute-to-minute basis. Your mileage may vary, but if you prefer to just sample the flow, perhaps check out Gifwich directly during the debate and reblog your favorites piecemeal. You can even sample curated real-time selections from the Guardian’s liveblog or Tumblr’s official Election blog.
All debates (and our Gifwich GIF coverage) begin at 9pm Eastern Time:
- Wednesday, October 3 - Presidential debate on domestic policy
- Thursday, October 11 - Vice-presidential debate on foreign and domestic policy
- Tuesday, October 16 - Presidential town meeting on foreign and domestic policy
- Monday, October 22 - Presidential debate on foreign policy

Why the like button must die…
For story thats being shared to really matter the like button must die.
Before the single stroke of a ambiguous Like button people used to comment with whit and there was space for puns and general creativity with words. Now these meadnering digressions that filled pages of Myspace to Facebook have been killed off with a simple button its to easy to just click.
The Like button actually which means nothing to the others involved and the original instigator of the post because it has quickly become background noise rather than an challenge or insight or affirmation or joke that form a decent interaction online.
The Like button is simply in-humane and must be killed. Even those who take the time to write a comment to which the person who posted would feel more fulfilled than a like are often put off because they will be judged for what they say.
Imagine if you clicked through to a nice photograph or interesting statement by an acquaintance or a brand you liked and their had been 10 likes but no comments, its unlikely you would comment and more likely you would simply join the list of Likes.
However if you clicked through and there was a conversation going on with 10 comments its a lot more likely you would join it with a thoughtful human to human comment, thought or some whitish digression to which the original poster would be 100 times more fulfilled by.
This is storyelling through interaction now the click of a button. This is why the like button must die and this post is currently the most perfect example of said murderous intent.
