The best address he has ever delivered. Barack Obama became America's first black president yesterday, embracing his culture while comforting the mourners, remaining vulnerable as a person, and being Presidential.

Brilliant.

How could it not be political, when the Republican Party has weaponized its supporters and made violence a virtue?

Introduction
Shaun is an entrepreneur, a social media pioneer and a privacy expert who specializes in brand building, management and marketing, and issues surrounding public/ private information. Shaun won the Mashable Open Web Award in 2008.

He leads the consulting firm, Dakin Associates where he provides strategic guidance to both non profit and for profit organizations on social media, marketing, communications, public affairs, strategy, and business development.

In 2011 he joined the Webbmedia Group as the Managing Partner of Training.  The Webbmedia group provided leading edge digital media training and strategy to communications professionals and media organizations.

In 2011 he stood up a new venture called ReverseRobocall.com that allows citizens, for the first time in history, to send their own robocall to politicians and the lobbyists in Washington and beyond.    Not only does ReverseRobocall.com allow voters to send one call to one or hundreds of politicians and companies, it then posts the audio of the calls online for anyone to listen to and rate. You can read more here in Ars Technica.  While ReverseRobocall.com was a cool idea, it is no longer a consumer facing website.

He started a non-profit, The National Political Do Not Contact Registry, in 2007 to fight for voter’s privacy rights and to fight against those evil political robocalls.  In the space of a year he took the organization from a start up to over 200,000 members and he became the spokesperson for voter privacy throughout the nation.   During that time he testified in the US Senate, was on CNN, MSNBC, NPR, XM Radio, NBC, CBC, and ABC.  He is most proud of helping to introduce the Robocall Privacy Act with Senator Feinstein.
 
As the founder of the NPDNC Registry he won the Mashable.com Open Web Award in 2008 for the use of social media by non-profits, was nominated as being one of the top 15 Twitter moments for 2008 and as one of the most influential Washington, DC based social media experts.
 
He loves to teach, speak, and inspire people with how technology can solve problems for people, organizations and society.  In 2009 he founded the series of un-conferences called PrivacyCamp based on the barcamp model and open space technology.   PrivacyCamp has evolved to become the world’s primary event for business, academia, advocates and policy folks to get together to discuss privacy related issues.   In this capacity he runs the weekly privacy chat called #PrivChat, a Twitter discussion.
 
Shaun currently is a management and marketing consultant at Dakin Associates.  In addition, he was recently a fellow at the Future of Privacy Forum and an adjunct professor at George Mason University and the school of business.

Shaun started his career as a teacher in Japan and then a corporate trainer in the States.  He has worked at companies such as FedEx, Fannie Mae, IXI Corporation, Laureate Education, and the Motley Fool.   He received his BA in Government from Colby College and his MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.  He lives in Falls Church, VA with his wife, son, and dog.
Bragging rights
Am sometimes called the "robocall guy" after I made political robocalls a topic of national discussion in the 2008 Presidential Campaign. Saturday Night Live created a character for Weekend Update called "robocall". Cool.

We bring our two Standard Poodles to the PGC and are very happy with the service and the price. Grooming Standards (or Spoos) is a very long process and not every groomer can do a good job. Are there better places? Of course. Do they charge double the amount? Of course they do. Bonus is that the owner has a Spoo as well and he (Mark, the spoo) is the older brother to our two spoos, Clifford and Rockford.
