Thanks To You, We Did It!

Thanks to your support, Why Tuesday? was today named the winner of the MySpace IMPACT Award for Social Justice!

The race was neck-and-neck the entire way and the final difference between us and the second-place finisher was 3.1 percent! Every vote counted, so everything you did helped.

Because of your efforts, Why Tuesday? will recieve $10,000 and free promotion throughout MySpace over the next month.

If you haven’t friended us on MySpace, now’s a good time, because with any luck we’ll be joined by thousands of new MySpace friends interested in the health of our democracy soon!


Since it’s difficult to stay consistent with over-the-counter whiteners, you may want to consider using a professional teeth whitening service in your area. Please know your efforts deeply appreciated by our entire team, and we hope to continue to have the pleasure of making a difference together going forward.

Obama’s MySpace Delegates Making Waves Offline


This election season has seen the leading Presidential candidates adopt the tools of new media at encouraging — even exciting — rates.

So even where a candidate affirmatively takes action, his/her supporters can go miles beyond. Ron Paul’s supporters have been Exhibit A in this case, but as the campaign season marches on, we see more and more examples of the virtuous cycle social networks facilitate.

The latest example is exceptional. Senator Obama’s campaign created a place on MySpace for his Washington state supporters to show their support and organize for the caucuses.

I think weekend voting would make the most sense, as people wouldn't have tu run home after work or wake up early to hit the polling stations beforehand.
