I’d be a poor book-blurber indeed if I didn’t take the opportunity to urge you to check out Netroots Rising by Lowell Field and Nate Wilcox now that it’s available for pre-order. Field’s one of the main movers behind the RaisingKaine blog and community that’s done so much to help push Virginia in a progressive direction over the past few years, and Wilcox has extensive experience at the intersection of politics and new media. The book takes you through several case studies of races in which innovative forms of online activism seem to have given one side or another a decisive edge and the bottom-up perspective is a useful corrective to the sometimes airy mass of speculation you sometimes get on this topic.
