FCW Insider: More on Obama's Internet focus


Earlier this month, I mentioned The Atlantic Monthly piece about what an Obama presidency might look like called HisSpace.




Some interesting points from the article:


It’s worth noting that some of the best-known presidents in U.S. history have stood at the vanguard of past communications revolutions—and that a few have used those revolutions not only to mobilize voters and reach the White House but also to consolidate power and change the direction of politics once they got there.


There were a number of interesting comments to that post that I would recommend.

But now you can hear Ambinder make his case for himself for an interview he gave for NPR. It is a fascinating story.
