As a bit of fun on U.S. Independence Day, TechRepublic is running a mock election for "President of the Internet." The idea is that July 4, 1776 is the day when the United States celebrates its birth as a nation. The Internet itself now has over one billion citizens, so if it was a nation unto itself, who would its residents select as their leader?

Here are the four candidates:

  • Mark Andreesseen
  • Leo Laporte
  • Molly Wood
  • Jason Calacanis

To find out why these four candidates were chosen, to vote, and/or to write in your own candidate, check out the TechRepublic post.

The poll will be open for one week until 11:59 pm Eastern on Saturday, July 11. If a less than a one percent victory margin separates the top two candidates then there will be a run-off between those two.

    like Tim Berners-Lee. All of the other candidates would be moot without his research. And you could even add Al Gore for championing the cause. *grin* I'm sure that'd make him happy.

    don't even mention a posibility like this, with larger
    businesses "eating" small ones (Like Google and Yahoo) in
    some time we'll be under the shadow of powerful people
    and they will control EVERYTHING about our FREE
    information superhighway... i don't intend to scare
    anyone, but it is a tendence to take control of
    everything... just look at google's "shopping cart" and
    you'll see my point
