I wonder if anyone from MoveOn.Org or the Republicans will notice our GoMeme experiments? (Not that I’m taking sides — I’ll simply be happy if somebody wins the election!) Grassroots political campaigns could potentially really benefit from the techniques we’re testing here. For example, imagine a “blog meme” for a political campaign — a meme that states some useful facts about a candidate and their opponent, perhaps has some survey questions and a GUID, and has the added benefit of a cool Improve-Your-Google-Ranking-By-Hosting-This-Meme candy coating? Wow — it could spread the message to a lot of blogs pretty quickly if done right. That might actually work. But I try to stay out of politics, so I’m not taking sides here or endorsing anyone. If you read this and know the “right people” — feel free to suggest the idea to them.
