Edelman Acquires Grassroots Enterprises

The only survivor of the political dot-com boom that I know of has finally been gobbled up — nothing’s eternal in business, my friends. If I remember correctly, back in the late ’90s Grassroots burned through a few tens of millions of investor dollars before reinventing itself as an advocacy tool provider and consulting firm. Only to disappear at last into the Edelman maw…let’s hope they got a good buy-out.

About Face: The Dramatic Impact of the Internet on Politics and Advocacy [New Book]

Some news on the publishing front — Karen Jagoda of the E-Voter Institute has put out a new book on the internet’s role in the political world, and one section derives from a piece I wrote for her earlier report on social networking and politics. Now in convenient book form! Other friends-of-e.politics on the About Face author list include Michael Bassik, Kathie Legg, Peter Greenberger, Shaun Dakin, Kevin O’Neill and Rob Arena, the last two fellow veterans of the political dot-com boom era (now almost ten years gone!).

You can order as an e-book or have a paper copy shipped your way just as easily. Good stuff — check it out.
