To hear the press tell it, Sen. Barack Obama just completed his first term as high school class treasurer and is trying to parlay that triviality into a bid to become Leader of the Free World. Innumerable pundits, most notable for how often they are wrong, are incessantly yammering about Obama’s allegedly slender resume. Had they bothered to do a little homework themselves, they would know that he has a stellar academic history, has unselfishly toiled for non-profit, public interest groups, and has ten years of legislative experience in the Illinois and U.S. Senate.
It occurred to me that pundits, and the citizens they misinform, might benefit by having convenient access to some basic facts about the man who may be the next President of the United States of America.
I created this web-site-in-a-widget to address the mischaracterizations in the media about Sen. Obama’s experience and readiness to be Commander in Chief. It contains biographical information as well as useful links for donations, voting registration, etc. In addition to that, when you install this widget you will have a handy rotating display of headlines from the Obama Blog. And all of these features will also be available to all of your site’s visitors.
The widget is easy to install on your blog, web site, or social network page. Just click the “Get & Share” button at the bottom of the widget and select a service from those displayed. Or you can select “Embed” to get the code to paste onto your page. That’s it!
This widget is offered free of charge to anyone who wishes to use it. If you like this widget, you can get one made custom for your own business, web site or blog. For that there is normally an exorbitant fee that will likely send you spiraling into bankruptcy and despair. But, if you act now, the exorbitant fee will be slashed to a much more reasonable amount that will allow me to enjoy a nutritious lunch and perhaps a decaf latte.
Technology like this can enhance the ability of alternative media to grow and compete with the corporate-dominated Conventional Media. It can spread important messages to the many corners of the InterTubesâ„¢. Given the state of the media, we all need to explore new ways to multiply our voices, and the creative use of widgets is one way to do that.
Widgets can be used for a wide variety of purposes – from advertising and promotion, to information distribution and announcements, to artistic projects and displays. Be creative!
