An excellent report on the Obama campaign’s tech staff. My favourite part is probably the short profile on Harper Reed, the campaign CTO who has a fascinating motto:
“I always look like a fucking idiot,” Reed told me. “And if you look like an asshole, you have to be really good.”
I haven’t got much more to say, it’s just an interesting, well-written piece of reporting. Not that easy to come by, these days…
