Brian Bailey Preface to the Revised Edition

A few good links...

1. The best and most important blog post during my break: Dave Winer's Advice for Campaigns. I wish a campaign would take this seriously and make the process about improving the country and not just electing a person.

Take the money you raise and instead of spending it all on advertising, spend some of it on stuff that helps people now.

2. Incredible 2-hour Q&A with Rob Bell of Mars Hill in Michigan (MP3 download). There are some truly powerful, and truly funny, moments.

3. Entertaining New York Times article on how presidential campaigns choose theme songs.

4. After all the wonderful, wacky web videos of the past few years, there's one that for some reason is still my favorite: The Shining Remixed.
