This was kind of eye-opening. I'm not sure I believe all the fact claims, but it's good for understanding what Donald Trump thinks he's doing and why his opponents have consistently misunderestimated him.
There are occasionally presidents who transcend the norm. Obviously, Washington, Jefferson, Jackson, Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson, FDR, Reagan.

David and Doc Searls invented social media. This article he presents from Gabriella Coleman resonates like The Mythical Man Month and Cathedral and the Bazaar, or David's own Cluetrain Manifesto. I see us in it.
