Uproar Over New Yorker Cover | The Maynard Institute

I think it's sad that so many people are blind followers of Obama.  Fine, he's better than McCain and would fight & win some important battles.  But to think he's a revolutionary icon to rally around just bugs the hell out of me.  So, it's refreshing some of this kind of analysis is finally coming out.  Elect him.  Love him.  But keep him accountable.  And don't ever forget that he's still just another politician who's part of the system.
Some of Obama's recent statements, about such subjects as the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act and Iraq, surprised his supporters, but Lizza, after close examination of this period of Obama's life, notes that 'perhaps the greatest misconception about Barack Obama is that he is some sort of anti-establishment revolutionary."Rather, every stage of his political career has been marked by an eagerness to accommodate himself to existing institutions rather than tear them down or replace them.' Obama, Lizza continues, 'campaigns on reforming a broken political process, yet he has always played politics by the rules as they exist, not as he would like them to exist. He runs as an outsider, but he has succeeded by mastering the inside game."

Project Charter

Use a Project Charter to create a basis for agreeing on a new technology (or any) project.  It creates a framework for making a decision, getting buy-in from all levels, and for clearly defining what you must accomplish.

New Orleans and the NTC

Hello from the Big Easy! I'll be blogging sporadically about my experience at the NTC, and New Orleans in general.

Right now I'm attending an affinity group session for CiviCRM. It's a great nonprofit resource for doing online fundraising, event management, and sending out emails to members and donors.

Later, I'm hoping to volunteer with Rosana Cruz from Safe Streets, an organization in New Orleans , "that campaigns for a new criminal justice system in New Orleans, one that creates safe streets and strong communities for everyone, regardless of race or economic status."
