Fancy writing code for Obama this summer?

I got an email from Michael Slaby, CTO of Obama’s campaign, as I am sure a ton of people did who somehow said they are software developers.

I think that Barak’s webpage is by far the best of all candidates, and it even did well on my super Tuesday Ajax endorsements.

For a second I had the thought of packing up the family, asking Google for a six mouth sabbatical, and heading to Boston to try to make sure Obama wins the presidential election. Wouldn’t it be great to say to my grandkids “Yes Bobby, after 8 of the worst years the US has ever had I got in the trenches to make a difference. Not with a sword, but with this thing we used to call a ‘computer’.”

Really has kicked in, but it would be a real wild ride.

How about you?

From day one, this campaign has used technology to help build a movement of millions of people.

As we broaden this effort and look toward the general election, we’ll increasingly rely on online tools to empower these supporters.

You once expressed an interest in helping out on the campaign or told us you work at a technology company.

Right now, you can be part of the campaign that’s using the Internet to revolutionize presidential politics — and play a key role in the movement that will change this country.
