Bill, It's kind of you to say so, but you've got it backwards. Joe Trippi and the incredible staff he put together masterminded the Dean Internet strategy. I came into the campaign, as a volunteer adviser, well after the strategy and the tactics were set (although they of course were ever-evolving). I was thrilled to be able to help out any way the campaign would let me, which ranged from doing a little speaking for the campaign, to kibbitzing about tactics and strategy, to doing some writing and editing, to standing out in the snow in NH holding a sign.

Trippi's book, "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised," tells the story well. It's also a terrific read. The fact that apparently some of what I'd written earlier helped shape some of Trippi's general thinking about the Net -- which is waaay different from setting strategy and tactics -- is one of the things I'm proudest of in my "career."

So, thanks for the credit, but it truly and really belongs to Trippi (and Zephyr and Mat and Nicco and ... and ... and ...).

PS: I'm not being modest. I'm being frank. In this case, they happen to go together.

David - Thanks for the clarification. I will make sure I give proper credit in the future. I heard this verbally from several sources but should have checked with you first before I said anything public. It is nice that the transparency of blogs caught the mistake and allowed it to be corrected. You still get credit for influencing the thinking of many people, including myself, on ways the web can be used constructively. Bill

Senator Obama is committed to taking our government off the auction block and ending special-interest influence in Washington so that we can give the American government back to the American people.
