Vote for Colin Delany (@EPOLITICS) FOR “Top 10 Who Are Changing the World of Internet & Politics”

By Henri Makembe on 07.28.10

PoliticsOnline and the World eDemocracy Forum have announced this year’s list for nominations of the Top 10 Who Are Changing the World of Internet and Politics. More than a decade old, the award “seeks to recognize the innovators and pioneers, the dreamers and doers who bring democracy online.”

One of this year’s nominee is Colin Delany, Editor of (where I’ve guest blogged several time).

Colin Delany is the self-described “host” of, a website devoted to documenting best practices, tools, techniques, and learning experiences from his time working on the web since the mid-1990s. Delaney’s debrief on the Obama’s use of online organizing, “Learning from Obama” is a widely distributed account of the wildly successful strategy and methods used during Barack Obama’s 2008 bid for the presidency. Delany is also the author of several other white papers on internet politics.

In an industry full of self promoters with little to show, Colin is one of the few that has consistently  put out good work for a long time.  Moreover, he does so in a way that benefits not just his clients but the entire community.  And while there is a number of impressive individuals on the list, I think Colin is deserving of your vote. So as they say, vote early and often.
