First, “Did Facebook GIve Democrats the Upper Hand?" Turns out those "So and so and so and so have voted. Are you a voter?" things on Election Day were actually part of a social experiment.
Second, “When the Nerds Go Marching in." This is one of those articles that I read and think, this is a sign that things are seriously changing in the world. Just the differences from 2008 to 2012 are so great… imagine what technology in campaigns will look like in 2020, or even in 2016. (I think this is similar to my feelings about how we access video content, specifically TV shows, today versus even just two years ago.)
