Last Sunday, I wrote a post on the Obama campaign’s use of social media.  I guess I’m less busy than TechCrunch (hard to believe), but they just posted a more comprehensive social-media analysis than me, including good detail of his win, voter turnout, and suggestions about how he uses social media going forward, and it is definitely worth reading.  This is an especially important read considering that Obama announced he will be employing the nation’s first Chief Technology Officer.

TechCrunch also wrote about Obama’s plan to host fireside chats on YouTube, reminding me of FDR’s fireside chats during another challenging time for our nation.

We live in a very historic time, and I’m trying to soak it all up to learn for the long-term.

Update 11/17: Just noticed Francois Gossieaux’s post on the subject of cause marketing in the Obama campaign in his Facebook status update.  A good read.  Let’s hope that Obama leverages the Millennials for civic causes, given his social momentum.  BTW, Francois does some good interviews, so it is worth following his blog.

Update 11/19: Twittermaven writes about Obama’s success on Twitter being copied by the G7.

  1. Hi Brett — Thanks for the kind words and the link back to my site. We have been talking about doing an interview for a long time now, maybe we should just get one on the books.

    Let me know — Francois
