Slaryn writes "Barack Obama's campaign website is taking a very unusual spin for a typical presidential campaign homepage, allowing users to create blogs, plan events, and interact with other users in an almost MySpace/Facebook fashion. From the site:
"This site — and this campaign in general — will always be a work in progress. We're going to experiment, we're going to try new things. Sometimes it will inevitably be a little rough around the edges, for sure, but that's the risk we're going to have to take if we're going to run this campaign in a new way."
Is social networking the way of the future in elections and voter-politician interaction?"
