What if we could centralize all of the people engaging in every major conservative and progressive cause, in one place, and learn from it? Here's a quick example of how to execute a direct contact strategy using Twitter imports in 7 easy steps...that can all be done from the NationBuilder platform.

"This really points to a larger issue: people have this tendency to believe that technology can answer all questions. The NSA's fetishism of surveillance via technology is an example of this. There's data there, so it becomes all too tempting to assume that the data must answer any possible question (thus, the desire to collect so much of it). But the data and the interpretations it can lead to are often misleading or simply wrong. And that's especially true when dealing with newer technologies or forms of data collection. That the criminal justice system could go decades without everyone recognizing the basic geometric limits of cell site location data based on a single cell is... both astounding and depressing. But it's also a reminder that we shouldn't assume that just because some evidence comes from some new-fangled data source that it's automatically legitimate and accurate."

Other than Barack Obama, no one in the White House is more polarizing than Biden. A proud man, he seems determined to keep himself “in the deal,” by helping his President and burnishing his legacy. Credit Photograph by Alex Majoli / Magnum.

"Nothing fills the underwear of the modern newsroom editor with liquid panic faster than social media." 
The advent of a new communications technology like Twitter plays hell with the editorial guidelines at news organizations because it gives independent megaphones to reporters who ordinarily couldn't be heard unless editors stamped their approval on their copy and sent it to the wire, the printer, or pushed it over the air.
