Joe Trippi till Stockholm

Mannen som revolutionerade den amerikanska politiken med kampanjen för Howard Dean (men misslyckades med att göra honom till president) kommer till Sverige för seminariet Nätrot 06. Läs mer hos Chadie på Kulturbloggen.

För er som inte vet riktigt vem Joe Trippi är eller vad han gjort, citerar jag från Amazon om hans bok "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised: Democracy, the Internet, and the Overthrow of Everything":
"When Joe Trippi signed on to manage Howard Dean's 2004 presidential campaign, the long-shot candidate had 432 known supporters and $100,000 in the bank. Within a year, Trippi and his energetic but inexperienced team had transformed the most obscure horse in the field into a front-runner, creating a groundswell of 640,000 people and raising more money than any Democrat in history - more than fifty million dollars - mostly through donations of one hundred dollars or less.

This is the story of how Trippi's revolutionary use of the Internet and an impassioned, contagious desire to overthrow politics as usual grew into a national grassroots movement and changed the face of politics forever. But it's also more than that.

It's about how to engage Americans in real dialogue, how business leaders, government leaders, and anyone else can make use of the most revolutionary idea to come along since man first learned to light a fire. No ... not the Internet. Or computers. Or telecommunications.


For those who thought the Dean campaign ended with a screaming speech in an Iowa ballroom, this book is a wake-up call. Joe Trippi explains how - right now - Internet democracy is transforming every aspect of American life by evenly distributing power."
Stora ord. Men utan tvekan en person man vill träffa. "The Revolution Will Not Be Televised" finns att beställa på adlibris.
