Barack Obama’s Flickr Set

November 9, 2008

Some folks have said that without the Internet Barack Obama could not have won the election. Others have opined that the election of 2008 signaled the Internet’s flowering as a campaign force.

I agree with both of those statements. And here’s another way the Net has altered politics. For the first time, we get to see up close and personal photographs of the president elect moments before and after he wins the election and gives his acceptance speech. How appropriate that the photographer, David Katz, published the 82 photos on Flickr, one of the most innovative and successful offspring of the social media movement. Check out the photo stream here.
