This week and last, the Campaign Institute is running a non-partisan training
here on campus at Harvard for people who plan to go work on campaigns
of various sorts. Right now, Jerry Brown is speaking about his
experiences over 30 years in politics. Later today, I’ll do a
session on using internet technologies in political campaigns
(consistent with the theme of our Internet & Society Conference on
Politics planned for December 10, 2004; and as mentioned here).
During this session and last week’s session, fifty great young
activists have been learning about the strategies and tactics of
campaigning. Most important, they seem to be forming a network of
people interested in getting involved in political campaigns (albeit
for various parties). It’s heartening to be here with them.
