Barack is LinkedIn

There are lots of examples of Web 2.0 having a big impact in the 2008 Presidential race.  The latest I noticed today is Barack Obama asking a question on LinkedIn.  He asks "How can the next president better help small business and entrepreneurs thrive?"  In 10 hours he has more than 800 answers, including mine.

I think that this is a great strategy.  I even figured out how I was linked to Barack through his LinkedIn profile.  Getting to hear from people directly is a great research tool.  I think that Barack also build support just be being 'out there' in cyberspace.  I am sure he's got staffers who are doing this for him, but it's good PR.

I'd encourage you to interact with the campaigns through these mechanisms.  I am not ready to decide who I am going to vote for based on their Facebook profile, but I think that some people will.
