    Don't know if any of you guys saw this. I thought it was interesting. His campaign's use of technology is ingenious.

    Team Obama's use of the internet and technology in general has been nothing short of amazing. They've built a 21st century version of the direct mail system created by the GOP 30+ years ago that served them so well for so long.

    On a related note, I heard John McCain invented the iPhone... :p

    This app is AWESOME! I downloaded Obama's Blueprint for Change on my MacBook and I read a page or two when I'm bored. Now I can read up on the issues right on my iPod touch! It's an amazing thing. :D

    Ha ha ! That has got to be the most lamest, most desperate political campaigning ad I've ever seen!

    Um.. EXCELLENT. I was a bi dissappointed that Obama's mobile site wasn't iPhone savvy, but this iPhone app takes the cake. Great job! I just wish I'd had this when I was canvassing here in Massachusetts during the primary. One guy asked me about Obama's stance on education, and I really hadn't done anything but the most cursory reading. Now, I have all of Obama's issue statements at a moments glance. Not.. not that I NEED them right now, but its nice. The best is the "media" feed. I like the fact that the most up-to-date YouTube videos are right in there, like a subscription. I sware, from the text message alerts to the blogging to the telephone help-system... they're just doing a terrific job. I've never seen anything like it.

    Obama has made some promises about making our governmental process easy to access and more inclusive through the use of technology. I really hope he wins, and hopefully... if its in the budget, we can see more of this. I think it undeniably makes America stronger. Like he noted in his interview @ Google HQ, there are too many dark spots across the globe and the country. If it can be done intelligently, people need more ways of connecting and propelling ourselves into a more effective future. It feels like everythings so out-dated, when you see someone rocketing ahead and doing things right.

    Just look at the Facebook 2.0 iPhone app and compare that to "Friendster's" offerings. Sites like "Linked-In" better get on the ball.
