I need to start keeping a formal track* of things that crop up about the Technology of Politics. For instance, here's one:

"UK e-voting pilots deeply flawed"

For Technology of Politics, an understanding of the technology is first required.

For the Politics of Technology, an understanding of politics is first required, to which technology can then be applied in an abstract kind of way. It's quite simple, the first word takes priority.

* A blog is not the way to do this though. Perhaps some kind of database that keeps "events" as generic objects. Like a catalogue. Then they'd be easily linkable, to plot a graph through time, or something.
