Virtual Book Party for About Face – December 10

As a co-author of About Face: The Dramatic Impact of the Internet on Politics and Advocacy, I’m participating in a “virtual book party” to promote the book on December 10, along with Karen Jagoda and a few of our fellow co-authors. Please buy the book and attend if you have any interest in the 2010 election and how digital media is being used in political and advocacy campaigns today. 

I hope to see you at one of these events!

Cow tails, taxes and politics

about_arnold_img3 Thanks to David Lewis for bringing to my attention Arnold Schwarzenneger’s sense of humor and appreciation for political theater. In the video below, which he tweeted about yesterday, the governor calls out legislators for debating about expansion of an existing law that makes it a misdemeanor to cut the solid part of the tail of any horse in the operation known as “docking.” Senate Bill 135, introduced by Dean Florez, would likewise prohibit the docking of cattle.

On a more serious note and more relevant to online advertising, Governor Schwarzenneger yesterday announced Overstock.com will reinstate California-based internet affiliate advertisers. This is great news for the affiliate marketing industry, which is fighting hard to avoid the so-called Amazon Tax from being introduced in California.
