E-Government and E-Activism

Chapter

Abstract

“We are the nation that put cars in driveways and computers in offices; the nation of Edison and the Wright brothers; of Google and Facebook.” In 2008, Barack Obama ushered in a new Internet era in politics. With over 13 million addresses in his e-mail list, 400,000 blog posts, 130,000 Twitter followers, and 5 million supporters on Facebook, Obama successfully raised half a billion dollars online for his 2008 presidential campaign.
