Image of the Week: Facebooking Obama

Chris Hughes, a co-founder of Facebook, has been the man behind Obama's Internet success and netroots-driven campaign. He helped bring that connectivity from the computer screen to the real world. As I mentioned yesterday, the Obama campaign has broken the barrier that separates the candidate from the voter and is paving the way for the future of politcal campaigning.

Here's Hughes in the Chicago headquarters.

NYT's has an excellent read on how this guy has done it and what it means for Obama. It's short. Read it.

That was an interesing article. I had no idea a Facebook guy was involved in the tech side of the campaign.
