Summary
The state of the art in political technology evolved radically 2004-2008. In 2004, software development in Democratic political campaigns consisted of a few rag-tag hackers taking shots in the dark and building applications. In 2008, political start-ups built innovative social applications that raised nearly 1/2 billion dollars, and elected a President.
