Online, there's only one Baratunde -- and that's Baratunde Thurston, the web and politics editor of The Onion, whose tweets, blogs and TV appearances have a loyal following. He proves that even in such a vast, oceanic Web, a voice as distinct as Thurston's can't help but stand out. He straddles the worlds of technology, politics, race and comedy unlike any other. A Harvard graduate (and the former Web and tech editor of the school newspaper, The Crimson), Thurston is an evolving one-man brand: a comedian and an author, host of PopSci's Future Of on Science Channel and the co-founder of the influential Jack & Jill Politics,which calls itself "a black bourgeoisie perspective on U.S. politics."
He is one of 15 candidates for a video interview in our HuffPost Spotlight Series, presented by HP. The top five question-getters will be interviewed using your questions.
