Is the iPhone democratic?


The iPhone is a powerful software platform and it appears to be becoming a political platform for the US Democrats in the current campaign.
This terrific report on the BBC on the harnessing of the iPhone for the Obama campaign gives us a hint of how new technologies are changing social, business and political interactions across the board:
‘US Democratic candidate Barack Obama is set to turn the iPhone into a political recruiting tool with an application aimed at getting the vote out. 

The software has a “Call Friends” option to help organise contacts in swing states.
It will be interesting to see how the UK political parties harness 2.0 technologies as we start to get into our electoral season in around one years time.
