Barack, Inc. - leveraging the President's brand

In very clever play on Obama's use of social networking to catapult him into the presidency, and trading on the popularity of the Obama "brand", Barry Libert and Rick Faulk (Chairman and CEO respectively of Mzinga- a social networking service) have rushed an Obama book into publication that is a not-too-subtle promotion for Mzinga services.

This link to Mzinga is on the landing page of the Barack, Inc blog:

Kevin Kelley - the next 5,000 days of the Web

These are the last two slides in a 20 minute presentation by Kevin Kelley - IMO a person who articulates our web experience now and in the future better than anyone.

I think his whole talk ( from TED Talks) is worth listening to so you will understand what Kevin means by "ONE".

Generation WE - Yes we can!

I have 12 grandchildren ages 8 - 26 who are all part of Generation WE, and I am really enthused about the potential they and their generational cohorts have to effect the important changes they need to achieve a sustainable future.

They have already made their political clout evident as they turned out in massive numbers to vote for Obama - and they now have a taste of what it is like to play an active role in making our world a better place.

My primary purpose in life is to help Generation WE to design and implement an audacious project: Project Free: Generation WE: A Generation 95 Million People Strong

The Visual Repertoire of Obama’s Run for the White House

I've been quiescent on this blog for several months due to radiation therapy which sapped my energy and interest in things visual - so, as a restart to my visual journal, i have clipped just a couple of images from a remarkable visual overview of Obama's run for the White House. Published by the Parson's Institute for Information Mapping and originally compiled by the Information Design Studio in Amsterdam.
