One longtime campaign manager said a system like Votizen could become a powerful tool. “On the surface it seems like a great gold mine of data” and could be “a terrific advancement in voter contact,” said Steven Glazer, the vice mayor of Orinda who managed Jerry Brown’s successful 2010 gubernatorial campaign. “For all the junk we invest in, that person-to-person contact is always the most persuasive, and if it comes from a friend, doubly so.”

It’s interesting to note that the one area of the U.S. economy that’s adding jobs and increasing productivity and wealth is also the one that is the most relentlessly product- and consumer-focused: Silicon Valley. The company off Highway 101 that best illustrates this point is, of course, Apple. The only time Apple ever lost the plot was when it put the M.B.A.s in charge.
