Clearing the Cache: From that Sub-Genre Known as "Nominee Art"
BY Nancy Scola | Monday, June 8 2009
- Organizing for America is asking that you email them photos of their "Stand with Sotomayor" fliers posted about your neighborhood.
- And OFA's Sotomayor art is having the desired effect of inspiring others; the poster to the right is a product of the Latino advocacy group Presente.org (designed by Favianna Rodriguez).
- As part of TED@State, data dude Hans Rosling praises Uncle Sam while at the State Department, "Thanks to the US for taking such wonderful health data! This is US government at its best."
- When you have a video camera, everything looks like a video-able moment. Seriously though, one of the benefits to the Obama White House from having a well-oiled video operation is that they can easily capture and distribute moments like this of a White House chef and a Philadelphia Phillie discussing organics and healthy eating.
- Can the President's Council of Advisors on Science and Technology -- a.k.a. PCAST and home to Google's Eric Schmidt and other science and tech big hitters -- be relevant in Obama's Washington? (The piece is a bit dated, but still very strong.)
- And the WaPo's Chris Cilizza is seriously down on Twitter. Seems like some version of a "Tweets Don't Kill Careers, Politicians Do" campaign is in order. (Thanks Shaun Dakin)
