Campaign Finance 2.0:小額募款力量大?

在一場名為 Money in Politics 2009: New Horizons for Reform 的研討會,Michael Malbin 發表了一份關於歐巴馬募款的研究報告,
SMALL DONORS, LARGE DONORS AND THE INTERNET:The Case for Public Financing after Obama。有一個有趣的問題是,要仰賴小額募款,需要能見度(捐款人數),但是在選舉初期,這個能見度可能就需要靠少數人的大額捐款來打開市場。所以,這是先有雞、還是先有蛋的問題嗎?

The Dean Scream - 陰謀論?

Dr. Michael R. Nelson 講了一則關於 2004 年 Howard Dean 未能通過黨內初選的陰謀論。電視媒體為了不想讓藉由網路競選活動而聲勢浩大的 Howard Dean 當選,故意拿著指向性麥克風對準他,放大他的講話音量,讓他聽起來像個總是用喊的在講話、打字都用大寫的瘋子。

汪萬里老師在 2004 年發表的《網際網路為美國總統選舉帶來新紀元—狄恩選戰的啟示》(93年8月玄奘資訊傳播學報第一期),就寫到:

狄恩在愛阿華首役失利,面對沮喪的支持者,他為了要鼓舞士氣,突然大喊大叫表示要繼續奮鬥,直到奪回白宮為止。他這驚天動地的一叫,經過全國電視一再重播,形象完全破壞。

Dr. Michael R. Nelson 看網路X選舉

NII產業發展協進會/數位典藏與學習之學術與社會應用推廣分項計畫,請了歐巴馬的網路科技顧問 Dr. Michael R. Nelson演講,THE CROWD AND THE CLOUD: THE IMPACT OF THE INTERNET ON U.S. PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS,非常棒,可惜宣傳不佳,只有少少幾個人在台大國發所小小的教室裡聽到。會後拿到簡報檔,摘錄一些重點:

網路謠言政治版:老布希與條碼掃描器

是假的?是假的?是假的???
snopes.com: President Bush and the Grocery Scanner:

Claim:   During a photo opportunity at a 1988 grocers' convention, President George Bush was "amazed" at encountering supermarket scanners for the first time.
Status: False.

麥坎也是受害者嗎?
An Anti-Bush Sr. Urban Legend Lives On:

這不是歐巴馬

嗯,因緣際會,近期到 KMT 的青年團與中央工作會議(?),分享關於網路選舉的一些經驗。所謂取之於XX、用之於社會,跟天壽里里長擬參選人所共同製作、在會議中所展示的簡報,如下:

Apply for a Job @ Change.gov

我不曉得馬政府裡的數千個位子是怎麼分配的,不過,Obama 當選後所推出的 Change.gov 上,則是公開招募有志之士為他工作。

Applicants for any of these non-career positions - whether in the White House or in any Federal Department, Agency or Commission - should use this website, as applying on-line is the fastest and most accurate way to get your information to us.

看起來,他真的會是美國第一個 TechPresident
