Republican National Convention organizers were forced to sharpen up what they promised would be their most cutting-edge event ever after it turned out that their website wasn’t exactly operating in real time. The official gopconvention.com website was still blabbing away in future tense at the close of proceedings Monday – as in, “With just days remaining before the curtain rises and gavel falls to open the 2000 GOP Convention, participants are closing in on Philadelphia.” Convention spokesman Tim Fitzpatrick’s explanation? “You never know,” he said. “We may close with a curtain rising.

Musk had long argued that it was better to participate in major discussions about the country’s future than to protest them out of principle. Monday’s meeting will, no doubt, include participants who feel the same way. “There are things he ran on that they didn’t agree with,” one White House senior official said of the council’s participants. “Some of them supported him.
