US Primary, social computing and attention to detail.

The quality, functionality and sophistication of Obama’s website and Clinton’s website blow me away. The blogs, the shops, the features, the use of social computing… – both candidates are doing well and setting very high standards. The attention to detail especially with Obama’s online campaign are astounding – check the well design, coherent, custom made icon set!

And check their respective flickr sites – Clinton here, Obama here.
BOTH campaigns are running a photo commentary on flickr. BUT check the number of contacts and see how the Obama campaign blazes ahead again in the ‘attention to detail’ department.

  1. There are no comments on the Clinton camp images. Granted I didn’t look at all of the pages but I even skipped to the last page and there are no comments. I can understand why they would disable them (if this is indeed what is going on) but when you contrast it with the Obama campaign having comments on their flikr sets, it’s very strange.
