Guardian: Obamas Road

Wie eine sich zum Medienhaus wandelnde Zeitung den Aufstieg des Studenten Barack Obama zum Präsidenten der Vereinigten Staaten erzählen kann, zeigt der Guardian mit seiner The road to the White House betitelten Slideshow. Eine 30-Minuten-Reportage, an deren Entstehung Guardian-Korrespondenten überall auf der Welt beteiligt waren. Sehr interessante Erzählform! (via)

Lßt Obama die Zeitungskrise?

Leading US newspapers said Wednesday they had been forced to print extra copies to keep pace with demand as consumers sought out mementos of Barack Obama’s historic election.
In Washington, about 400 people formed a long queue in front of the office of The Washington Post to buy the newspaper after copies sold out across the city.

AFP meldet: US newspapers struggle to meet demand. Löst Obama jetzt auch die Zeitungskrise in Amerika?


Auf die richtige Reihenfolge kommt’s an

Nur fürs Protokoll: Bevor Barack Obama heute nacht seine von der (TV-)Weltöffentlichkeit viel beachtete, historische Rede im Grant Park in Chicago hielt, verschickte er eine Mail. Drei Millionen Mal – mit diesem Inhalt:

I’m about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don’t want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign — every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it’s time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I’ll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing…

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,



Tim O’Reilly über Barack Obama

Our access to information today is unprecedented; the ability of individual citizens to discover and share important new ideas is greater than it has ever been in our history; important ideas are able to bubble up and become visible to those who need to know them. Barack Obama understands this. His campaign has demonstrated his ability to harness the internet not only for fundraising, but also his comfort with its decentralized nature.
Under the guise of free market experimentation, big companies with monopoly positions in local markets are asking us to change the fundamental rules that have served the internet so well. They want to be able to charge differential fees for different types of data traffic. This will, quite simply, be the end of the internet as we know it, turning it into a network that works much more like the cellphone network, slow to innovate, hostile to its users, extracting profits through artificial barriers rather than true value creation. Barack Obama supports net neutrality.
