Just saw a report on New York Times video interviewing will.i.am on the Yes We Can music video...stated authoritatively, as only the NYTimes can, that there have been over 10 million views so far. Wow.
Just think what the Obama campaign would have had to pay for that kind of exposure (was also featured on NBC and other news outlets). Now keep in mind that what is absolutely gorgeous about all this is the reality that were was no coordination. Inspired by Obama, will.i.am and friends just created, and uploaded. And started to change.
It's still not a done deal for Obama, and while my prayers are with him, we already have learned that "Yes We Can." We can, through modern technology, get the word out, with few barriers in our way. Not since Paine printing pamphlets of Common Sense has technology been used in such a dramatic way to spread the word.
