The “RSS tap”

One of the campaign aides asked me “what time did you go to sleep?” I answered “around 2 a.m.”

He said something like “you couldn’t turn off the RSS tap either, huh?”

Another key moment for me? Being in a small New Orleans house with John Edwards, his campaign staff checking their Blackberries for news reports. Yes, they read TechMeme and Memeorandum. Gabe will like that. Oh, and Technorati and IceRocket.

They’ve discovered that by using “the RSS tap” they can listen and talk about what people say, even when they are getting called idiots for various things.

If I were on a campaign I’d start a blog called “the idiotic thing” which would display the idiotic thing they did and either apologize for it, or answer it.

I’d add a blog of idiotic things to my RSS tap.

Heck, I might start one. Or Maryam might start one for me. 🙂

  1. Robert, tell the Edwards campaign if they start a blog like that (they can call it “Our Bad” or somesuch), I may just vote for them. And I’m not one to vote Democrat!

    Don’t expect anyone riding the plane game to say anything negative. I’ll vote for another Steak and don’t forget to keep the drinks coming. Help the inner city pour,and pour and pour. “Vote early and vote often.” Mayor D. ; )
