A few people mentioned the minority theme of last week's Dean meetup. Today at Salon.com, Farhad Manjoo writes about the effort to reach offline for more followers:
. . . what's remarkable about Dean's grass-roots organizers is that many already seem to realize that it's time to do something about minority outreach; the connected hive of Dean supporters, held together by blogs and hundreds of Yahoo groups, is, in a sense, self-aware, and capable of reacting to the shifting winds of a political campaign.

Also mentioned: the appropriation of Apple's "Switch" ad campaign by the Dean Media Team and efforts to move the meetups from "cute white middle-class cafes" to minority neighborhoods or retirement homes.

How this will influence Aaron's plans to use meetups to hang out with hotties [ 601am ] remains unknown.
