These are my Delicious links for October 23rd through October 29th:
- This Is That Guy Who Wins All The Lame Corporate Video Contests – Ad Wizards – Videogum – Coverage of my friend Joel, the professional contest winner, spawned by the NY Times profile on him. The best part of this one is definitely the comments: "this guy worked with me at summer camp one year. he sucks."
- From West Wing to the real thing | – An interesting analysis of the parallels between the (somewhat prophetic) story of Matt Santos character on Season 7 of "The West Wing" (2005), and that of Barack Obama on whom the Santos character was loosely based.
- Some Guy With a Website by August J. Pollak – 10/20/2008 – Costume contest – Hilarious door sign for Halloween party organizers banning "the use of non-clever and hastily assembled Sarah Palin costumes."
- Joel Moss Levinson: Meet Online Video Contest Guy! – Coverage of my friend Joel, the professional contest winner, spawned by the NY Times profile on him.

- Confronting Ghosts of 2000 in South Carolina – New York Times – A look back at the 2000 South Carolina Republican primary in which the Bush campaign viciously smeared McCain with unfounded personal allegations against him and his family. It turns out a good number of the people involved on the Bush side in 2000 now are working in and with the McCain campaign. The article also provides several specific examples that demonstrate McCain clearly subscribes to the maxim that foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds (otherwise known as whatever it takes to win).
- YouTube – Broadcast Yourself. – Video demos of the new "Enterprise" features for Google Analytics released October 22, 2008.
