As a technology entrepreneur I am impressed that with the Obama Campaign's leadership in using the Internet and social networking technologies so effectively and I decided that contributing this site and all its tools to the legion of Obama supporters worldwide would be a great way to add something to that record breaking grass roots democratic movement.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 23, 2008
The Industry Radar, the leader in RSS syndicated enterprise news portals, today launched a news portal dedicated to the historic campaign of the presumptive Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama.
Designed for the 50 state campaign, http://www.barackobamaradar.com aggregates news about the campaign from over 5000 traditional news sites, YouTube, flickr, local news and media outlets and national and local political blogs updated hourly. The home page has a section with the latest headlines for each state and each state has its own page listing the latest 50 articles in detail and in coming days will have links to issue feeds, local news outlets and other state congressional, senate and gubernatorial news.
There is also a National News page that aggregates the latest content from the major mainstream media outlets like The Wall Street Journal, N.Y. Times, Time, Newsweek, CNN, ABC, CBS, Reuters, Bloomberg, MSNBC and Fox News well as top political sites like Real Clear Politics, Politico, Huffington post and many, many more that will continue to grow weekly.
"Our goal was to create for the tech savvy Obama supporters around the US and the world the definitive site where with one stop, and a few clicks, they can keep up with the race in depth nationally and locally throughout the day,", said John Nail, principal and Newsmaster of The Industry Radar, "As always our Radar sites put the most in depth, timely information at a viewer's fingertips so that in less than 2 minutes viewer's can scan what is happening and dive in from there for the details they are interested in."
The infrastructure for this site was developed by The Industry Radar and its RSS syndication partner Kipcast and content management partner Coldbricks over the last 2 years to serve business professionals engaged in human resources, employee benefits, healthcare, retirement and business insurance.
All http://www.barackobamaradar.com articles are tagged and searchable in an archive that is growing by over 700 new items per day. As with any Enterprise Web 2.0 site viewers can subscribe to the more than 100 unique http://www.barackobamaradar.com newsfeeds in their browsers, via email or add them to their portal of choice - My Yahoo!, Google, My MSN, myAOL, Pageflakes, netvibes or their favorite social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, del-ic-ious, Digg et al. In coming weeks the unique RSS feeds on the site will number more than 300.
"As a technology entrepreneur I am impressed that with the Obama Campaign's leadership in using the Internet and social networking technologies so effectively and I decided that contributing this site and all its tools to the legion of Obama supporters worldwide would be a great way to add something to that record breaking grass roots democratic movement." Mr. Nail said.
"Plans are under consideration for a McCain Radar", continued Mr. Nail, "Sen. McCain is a unique American hero that I respect greatly but based on the fact that he has said publicly that he cannot use a computer and the relatively low use by McCain supporters of YouTube, Facebook and MySpace I am not sure enough people would use it to merit the time and resources to build and support it".
"We've set up http://www.johnmccainradar.com with a poll there to see if McCain followers will vote for a page. If we get at least 5,000 yes votes we will build a mirror site for Sen. McCain's campaign. Anything less than that sort of support will show how limited their online supporter footprint is. We got over 10,000 page views in 3 days with a limited release thru only 10 Obama campaign listservs."
Logon to http://www.barackobamaradar.com to access the most in depth and timely news and visit it throughout the day. Over 5000+ new sources are refreshed hourly 7X24X365 to keep our viewers up to date.
