Today's topic at my blog "Resurgence" on BigThink.com:
The Democratic Party Is Now The Party Of Obama
I watched the State Of The Union address with my Twitter buddies. It was fun! I am getting to like TweetDeck,this latest of time wasting devices. In some ways, it was like I invited a big crowd over for a watch party, but didn't have to clean up afterwards.
I was able to share comments with my own followers while keeping an eye on a larger cross section of the country by typing "#sotu" into a search column. If you think about it, I basically had a focus group of 500 people whose comments were scrolling by me all night. CNN had 25 people in a room twisting a dial. I think I got better information from my group, even with the built in bias it has towards Obama.
