Is Obama The Technology President?

28 Feb

Did you know that George Bush did not use email for the last 3 years of his presidency due to a discrepancy in his email records from 2003-2005? Everything that the president communicates electronically is public record, so if they’re not communicating freely electronically, I guess they don’t have to worry about it. Now President Obama has been approved to use a special mobile device to electronically communicate with close staff and friends. Does this mean in years to come we will discover his secrets?

Presidential technology steps:

  • Communicates on Social Media Sites

Is Barack Obama the Technology President?

Fireside Internet Chat?

17 Nov

President-elect Barack Obama is doing another presidential first when his team recently announced that he will be holding his weekly addresses exclusively online. Senator Obama has been superior with his use of online technology during his campaign such as texting supporters of his choice as Biden as VP, Twitterring his whereabouts and registering an astronomical amount of online transactions.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (F.D.R.) started the trend back in the 1940s using radio as his medium of choice to speak to the nation, President Regan did the same and now President Obama will use the Internet; he will use the same medium that propelled him into the Oval Office. A new study released by Forrester says that the average age of people watching video online is 35 years old.

Will you watch our new president online or stick to TV?

You may have heard the FactCheck website mentioned in the past. In the last presidential election, Dick Cheney misspoke the fact check URL and said “.com” instead of “.org”.

Now the website has become a fixture of American politics and a source of unbiased information.

Obama Ads in Video Games

21 Oct

During the final stretch of the 2008 presidential campaign, Barack Obama has strategically placed ads in a variety of popular video games. Among the games that Senator Obama is placing them are Guitar Hero, Madden 09′, Nascar 09′ NBA Live 08′ and NHL 09. This is a first time in a presidential campaign that advertising reached out to another group of potential voters inside the virtual world of video games.

However is political placing ads into video games really targeting a new group? The interesting fact is, according to the Entertainment Software Association, the average video game player is 35 years old, and 49% are between 18 and 49.

Obama started a trend of placing ads in video games. Do you think these ads could sway votes?

Michael Moore is doing to the movie industry what Radiohead did last year with the music industry. The documentary filmmaker is offering his full length film “Slacker Uprising” as a free download.

Now that the Olympics are over, the political scene is starting to heat up! If you can’t get enough of politics then check out Politico. This website is currently doing a good job of breaking down and reporting on the status of the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign from all sides.

I like that there is a daily Gallup Poll ticker in the right corner of their website showing which candidate it ahead; right now it says McCain is ahead of Obama. There are also a handful of Political Bloggers that are dialed into discussion about the heated topics of the day ranging from political TV to convention chatter. The editorial cartoons by Wuerking are worth a chuckle too.
