On June 20th, a group formed on my.barackobama.com to pressure Obama to change his stance on the FISA bill. On June 26th, it had a little over 300 members. Today, at noon on June 29th, it has 2,200 members. The group has its own wiki, including a page with stats.
In the listing here, you can see that the 10th biggest group has around 2,700 members (I don’t think there is a way to view group stats after the top 10– if anyone knows how, please fill us in).
This means that the anti FISA Bill group has grown to be one of the biggest groups in the system, in only 9 days. To my knowledge, it is the only group on the site (with more than a handful of members) that is centered around an issue that supporters do NOT like about Obama. It is remarkable that such a group could grow to be one of the biggest groups in the system.
Hopefully within 24 hours, the group will be in the top 10, which could be key in generating media attention.
If you haven’t joined this group yet, please do so, and share it with your friends. The discussion on the email list has been largely constructive, respectful, and interesting, coming from folks from a wide range of perspectives and approaches.
