Chris Hughes, Facebook and Obama

Great story in Fast Company this week about Facebook Co Founder Chris Hughes and the Obama campaign.  There has been such press around the fact that he is only 25 and has had such an amazing impact.  Not to take anything away from his success, BUT his generation is the generation of collaborative thinking, sharing, being the “go to person”, etc.  I think Chris’ story is inspiring and makes me want to do more in this arena, BUT I think GenXers and GenYers will have many of these stories over and over again.  They are online, they are socializing and whether Chris calls it community or not, they are the definition of community.  When I compare the way my generation did things (baby boomer) with my kid’s generation the differences are endless and many of them, like the sharing of information are great improvements.  Read the article and enjoy.  He is a great model for all of us, not just the “young ones”!  Happy Collaborating!
