Dear Friend,

Thank you for contacting Senator Obama and Obama for America with ideas for the use of technology on the campaign. Barack greatly appreciates the outpouring of support he has received from across the country and from Americans around the world, and on behalf of Obama for America, we appreciate hearing from you

There is a lot of work to be done, and we appreciate having the benefit of your ideas. Senator Obama is traveling around America listening to the thoughts and concerns of people from all walks of life, and reading letters and emails from many more. Barack knows well that Washington does not have a monopoly on good ideas, and neither does he. That is why it's important to hear from everyone, and we will take your ideas under consideration.

In the meantime, please bookmark and visit often.

We've built a set of easy-to-use web tools that empower you. At you can:

- build your own profile and connect with supporters near you
- find or create your own local or national group
- create your own personal fundraising page and track your progress
- find events near you or plan your own
- chronicle your campaign experience on your own blog

And there will be much more to come in the weeks and months ahead.

Thank you again for contacting Senator Obama.

Look, tweak the software to at least think I might be DISABLED and tell me why I might care to vote for you because you CARE. This auto-email is telling me OBAMA DOESN'T CARE ABOUT DISABLED PEOPLE and I have to go and raise my voice somewhere else on line — is that accessible? Not if it's AJAX, which is most of Web 2.0 ...

They have fixed the Alt tags though.
