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 made forty calls today to Virginia, lots of wrong numbers and leaving messages, a few people who wouldn't tell me who they were voting for (so clearly not Obama), but a number of Obama supporters who said they were excited to vote for him and thanked me for calling, and then one woman who said "We are all voting for him, but you are the third person who has called today, and four people have come by the house, stop calling us!" She was nice, just exasperated.

I leave for Nevada tomorrow. Good luck with GOTV efforts, everyone!

Awesome. Yeah, I got one guy who said he'd been called already today, and several not-gonna-tell-mes.

Have a good trip!
