Looks like Obama’s campaign is continuing to be a leading pioneer in this emerging new era of participatory politics. Check out www.barackobama.com to see the newest edition to their efforts to make this campaign about all of us: MyPolicy.
A short paragraph introducing MyPolicy reads, “Across our country, everyday people like you have experiences and ideas that haven’t previously been heard. This is your chance to speak your mind and help set the policies that will shape this campaign and change the country.”
While the full extent of this new feature is still to be revealed, along with how innovative policy ideas will be identified and incorporated, it’s clear that Obama’s campaign is rapidly moving in the direction of creating one of the first ever “participatory political platforms.”
