Politcal Parties in the Third Wave Era

Wonderful Wash. Post article by Everett Ehrlich in which he argues that the major political parties are Second Wave institutions driven by the information-managing processes of the industrial era. He says that the Web drives the cost of information to near-zero, which lets others (Howard Dean) mount effective campaigns without the party apparatus. If you read it, hang in there till the closing paragraph and his predictions.
