Discussion: Beware of the Smart Campaign

1. To start out, what were your experiences with the previous presidential campaign? Were there any instances where you felt like you were treated as a number?

2. In the article it was mentioned that $100 million dollars was being spent to compile "data on everything." How do you feel about campaign workers accessing this data about you?

3. Do you feel it is acceptable that campaigns try to appeal to emotion, such as the Obama campaign using family pictures whenever possible?

4. Tufekci argues "campaigns should make public every outreach message so we at least know what they are saying." Do you agree with this statement?
