The Obama campaign's overall technology use is brilliant. But why do they have to engage in cheap deception?

 Correction: The "CNNBC" video I was writing about is actually by, not the Obama campaign. I apologize for the error! 

I've been praising the Obama campaign's personalized viral video to the skies. And I stand by that; whatever your politics or nationality, you should look at it and take away lessons for your own business. But the website that delivers it is more problematic. It's designed to look like a news site, but with fake headlines and tabs. And the search box is a complete sham, even worse than Obama's infamous Search Engine to Nowhere.


I certainly hope that, if and when he is elected, Obama will see to it that this petty chicanery gets cut out.
