There is something in the Data in DC's Mayoral race that suggest?

We believe that within all the data and then analysis of the data some very interesting gray areas pop up and are fodder for us here to consider.

So let's start with what we know.   According to the Bivings Report at.
9 hours to go until the polls close, Slurp140 is ranking @Fenty2010 slightly ahead with 124 tweets and 1,577 mentions and @GrayforMayor with 85 tweets and 1348 mentions since August 26th. Overall, @Fenty2010 is followed by 852 people and following 943 while @GrayforMayor is followed by 923 people and following 921.
Now lets talk about a few inside baseball stats in our next blog.

The Campaigns have learned a few lessons.

So far from what we can see the ruidmentry skills of using the cloud are starting to form in some of the political clouds.  The effort or cloud seeding ranges from have a presense to fully run cloud campaigns. we will use the following as the basis of our conversation about Cloud Campaigns.

Basic is the awareness to have the names and some activitiey on at least 5 social networking sites.

Skilled is the cross connection of personal socialmedia to campaign socialmedia and concerted effort  to engage the use of supporters cloud on this would be on.

 Advanced we don't have that yet.

We hope to capture them and look at what is working and what is not over the course of this blog.  If you know of efforts or a campaign in total #fail then let us know about it. Screen shots are great and video is better.

Cloud The Vote is an effort of the CloudCampaign.Co & Help Earth Foundation.  We support #Fairuse

So your on the cloud and you want to campaign

We're goin to upend the tradational Get out the Vote method to run the last days of a campaign, which in our 30 years of building yard signs, handing out lit, knocking on doors, while building list of names of potential voters is over.

The socialnetworking of the Intertubes is the biggest news and citizen are self reporting or publishing depends upon the story sure however what we know is that many, many, many of us will update our cloud about the what when and how we vote or don't.   Now this seemingly scattered groups of clouds will be brought into focus whether it be a large or small issues there is no where that the cloud is not already.

How it's called Collective Intelligence and the kids are doin it in all the cool labs and office basements and we're goin it here for campaigns,  And we are going to start in the Nation's Capital and elect some one ((((Vince Gray))) that is being outspent by a margine of 3 to 1.   We like to call it the GrayCloud.org and we'll have that site up and running ASAP.

This election we are going to use the Cloud with your help and change the way politics is actually done in the District of Columbia.


Get ready to Cloud the Vote.
