And I found today's inspiration: Dear History by Saul Williams:

Dear History... I have walked through your museums wondering how it is that greatness has lived and died all before my time. ...

Dear History, we no longer believe in you. We have invested our beliefs into the present time, the present moment, into our present opportunity to shift our reality into one that does not resemble the past. We stand on the shoulders of those that have fought and dreamed, and on the necks of those who are caught in time.


I can't get the flash embed to work on LJ, so go watch. It's good stuff.

Like I said yesterday, I'm making Get Out The Vote calls for Barack Obama. At this point, it's calls to Obama supporters to remind them to vote and bring others to the polls. You can go to barackobama.com to make calls.

If you want to do something else, probably the easiest way is to go to my.barackobama.com, find your nearest campaign office, and call or show up. (snolan has a comment about things you could be asked to do, including things that might be easier for us introverts.) You can use MyBarackObama to search for events and groups in your area. (I joined my town's group awhile back, and they send me emails about phonebanks and carpooling to New Hampshire.)

This is a Campaign Open Thread for introverts and others. Share what you're doing, what you want to do, what you're worried about doing, the latest, whatever.

I'll be doing GOTV calling (I think) tomorrow morning at the local DFL office.

I work at a call center, so I'm on the phone a lot. But I haven't done outbound on a regular basis in almost two years, so I'm a bit nervous. As long as no one calls Obama the n-word, I'll be fine. (I heard that happen, along with a "coon" when we were fundraising in the deep South.)

Yikes. I don't know about your call lists, but the ones I've been using are supposedly Obama supporters/leaners, so I hadn't even considered that possibility.

Good luck!

Those were people who had voted in the Democratic primary. Don't know what tomorrow's list will be, though.
