I was left pondering Bill Clinton and what he must know about Web Publishing. I assume he and his wife Hilary talk some about her campaign and I’m assuming he learned something about the internet during his time as President. A few things are very evident to me.
1. Don’t Be Afraid of Comments.
Bill actually goes a step further and he encourages it by allowing free comments on his blog.
2. Don’t Be Afraid of Open Source.
Clinton Africa is built entirely on WordPress. Check out their cool WP-Sign In Page I would however recommend they Whitelist this. But really don’t worry about expensive CMS’s stick to free stable tools and cut down on your overhead.
3. Don’t Be Afraid of Passion.
Seems like loads of people on the internet today are afraid of passion. Don’t be just be passionate and stick to your guns. Clinton’s passionate about making real change in the world even though he’s accomplished more than most of us ever will. He hasn’t quit. He keeps pressing on. That’s something all of us need to take to heart.
