ABSTRACT
Focuses on the uses made of the Internet and other technology by Joe Trippi, the campaign manager for former Vermont Governor Howard dean, who is seeking the Democratic candidacy for the 2004 presidential election. When it comes to the Internet, no detail is too small for Trippi. Some campaign managers devote their energies to working the elite press or courting union leaders or wooing donors. But Trippi seems to spend an inordinate amount of his time checking Meetup numbers, posting to liberal blogs, sending text messages to supporters who have signed up for the Dean wireless network, and otherwise devising ways to use the Internet to build what Trippi envisions as "the largest grassroots organization in the history of this party." The Internet might account for Dean's staying power. Other innovations--wireless communications, Howard Dean.tv (a website that runs streaming video of Dean speeches and events), a network of rapid-response bloggers--have followed, and Trippi is now doing more with the Internet than any other presidential campaign. One of the most important online vehicles for the Dean campaign is blogs. Just as President Bush has wooed conservative talk-show hosts, holding a special day for them at the White House, Dean is the first candidate to treat relatively unknown bloggers as a critical opinion-making constituency.
