Social Obama


I can’t stop talking about how much I’ve been appreciating the efforts by the Social Team behind Elect President Obama. From campaigning through to victory, the team behind the ‘big man’ has been able to take advantage of every single communication tool available out there to connect with the devoted audience.

Social Media has never been as mainstream as today, and of course the elections, where conmmunication is key to both parties, were going to be tested on this area. Well…Obama’s online presence has definitely set a benchmark!

picture-24The initial website includes all the right elements a space like this should be including when exposed to social media, with all the tools smoothly linked together from one place to the other. Also, because of the variety of cultures involved in this event, they were smart enough not only to tackle the mainstream biggest players in the Social Networking area (Facebook, Flickr and alike), but also more niche networks like AsianAve, Mi Gente and BlackPlanet

After the victory on November 4th, I’ve been thinking about the future of such activities: “Are they still going to be highly involved in Social Media? Will they be asking to share information and thoughts and involve the citizens in shaping this ‘change’?

My questions were quickly answered this weekend when I was made aware of the new site launched by Obama’s Web Team called The website is a communication platform; it’s the website where Americans will be able to track/monitor this well expected ‘change’… This includes the political agenda, all you want to know about the Elect US President and Co., a blog with all the latest news and…TA Daaaaaaa… Social Media:image0012

Through the ‘American Moment’ Obama is asking Americans to share their stories around the Elections. The message is very straight forward and truly inspiring  – “The story of this campaign is your story. It is about the great things we can do together when we come together around a common purpose”

I like this a lot and I am very much looking forward to see how Obama is going to bring this content to life

Another interesting site is the one found by Kris today which evolves around the journey to the Inauguration Day in January 2009. A bunch of supporters has launched a site especially for offering people an affordable chance to go to Washington DC for the event – very impressed by the IA!

Now I guess it’s time to end this praise about OBAMA’s great work, he made it and hopefully he will now make a difference! Let’s just wait and see…

LisapMaxwell – Live Agency

I had to blog about this straight away…

LisapMaxell is a creative agency, based in Chicago, whose expertise is to ‘make their clients famous quickly’.  Well… looks like they have a good strategy in making themselves famous first!

The employees have webcams at their desks and are streamed LIVE on the agency website. People visiting the property can chat to them based on their ‘Availability to Chat’

Just chatted to Jim the Art Fella – they all seem pretty cool

What do we make of this?

I personally think it’s a really cool idea and something i have always wanted to do – Live Stream from the office – people are curious! FACT.

I’ll write more when i am slightly awake and have found more about this lovely bunch of people…

Bacardi BLive La Fiesta

Got on the train to work and already tired…wow eh eh

Damn Bacardi LOL
La Fiesta was probably the best party organized by a brand I’ve ever been to

They had all the right elements to make it a great event:

  • great club makeover with the Cuban theme
  • free Bacardi drinks for the first hours to get people going and taste the real flavour…
  • really nice crowd and
  • awesome music

There were three or four rooms, all with completely different music, from dance to house to Latin, the latter being AMAZING!

We didn’t leave till 1230ish, reason being Groove Armada got on stage at 1130, surprisingly on time as planned and… Oh boy, weren’t they unbelievable?
They totally rocked the house… People were on fire!

Me Roby Jen Jossy and James had and absolute wicked time and looking forward to hopefully the next one!

Thanks Bacardi…
Now my affinity to your brand is definitely much higher and will be looking out for you more
