Yes We Did, Rahaf Harfoush
May 13, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes
When you have your own organization, you can do a lot on the fly, which is what the Obama team did. But when you are tied to a national government or major organization, where most teachers live, and as the Obama team now finds itself, your options are sharply limited (especially if you're ethical - if you're not ethical, well, see below). What would be more interesting, therefore, than the book about how the Obama team used social media to win the election, would be how to use social media (or some such thing) to effect change and/or run the country. Not such a simple proposition.
