Mandate Media: Internet Strategy for People Changing the World
Politics + Technology
In politics, a great e-mail list still trumps a buzzy social media account. And it’s not close.
From Washington Post:

What a political campaign would do, if it could, is send someone to your house to sit down with you and talk to you for an hour, get to know you, meet your kids, and convince you to go out and vote on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of the appropriate November.

Barring that, it loves at least knowing where you live, because from there it can figure out how often you vote and who you live with and, after cross-referencing with some databases neatly compiled by massive consumer research organizations, knows what you buy and how you think. (Within a certain, probably-smaller-than-you-think margin of error.)

The answers will hinge on many factors, but there is some data that can help. The Pew Research Center released a pair of studies, one on internet usage and one on media habits, that have some strong indicators. And the answers might surprise you.

Test This, Not That!
From Share Progress:

If you’ve ever tried to lose weight (or even if you’ve ever opened up a glossy magazine) you’ve probably seen it: a photo of a tiny pile of almonds next to a massive burger, with a headline admonishing you to “Eat This, Not That!”.

So with that in mind, we’re bringing you Test This, Not That. Better A/B testing was your New Year’s resolution, right?
