ADMK is better than DMK...

in their internet presence. You would expect DMK, with its strong multimedia presence to have a better website. Sadly, no. Their website is really crappy, especially when compared to ADMK's clean website setup exclusively for the elections (link via Chennai Today).

At-lest the DMK website loads quickly. The ADMK website has some embedded flash video that really pisses you off. I saw it on a dial-up connection and my god it is irritatingly slow! Otherwise... a certainly more informative and better looking website. Somewhere in Indian politics, quality loses out to showmanship.

Kitsch still rules however. :) Maybe it's a deliberate thing. To be crappy and badly designed - and therefore assert that one is not (cough) elite.

Or maybe that's just my convoluted brain.

Anand, for me in a dsl connection it loads immediately. For some fun, read the history section in ADMK site.

Neha, one more difference is there is hardly any Tamil in the ADMK site.

I don't know if they've similar posters flashing every where, but outside my campus, you couldn't miss it - electadmk.com everywhere! An Advertisement for their website!

One of them hacked the other's website in 2002 or so! Wonder when that's going to happen :-)
