Political campaigning in the digital age: Lucian Despoiu at TEDxBucharest

Lucian is a passionate entrepreneur determined to create meaningful connections between the political world and citizens. Where others see lies and false promises, Lucian strives for truths and earthbound programs. Where transparency, accountability and communication are found to be lacking, he throws in the tools and techniques to create a fair and effective link between politicians and citizens. It is for this reason exactly that he founded the two companies that promise to change the face of political communication — Majoritas, Technology and Media, and Kondiment Group, the leading European Interactive Agency.

Lucian is an influential persona in the political marketing world, having successfully led more than 20 political campaigns in Ghana, Albania, Serbia, Bulgaria, Greece and Austria. Under his supervision and strategic thinking, the two companies have grown to offer full services and technologies to political parties, politicians and public institutions.
Equipped with surprising data, tools and insights, Lucian will take the stage with a global message on how voters can and should influence political parties in the new digital era. Be the leaders and creators of your own future!In the spirit of ideas worth spreading,

  1. Thank you Lucian Your Presentation Opens minds to an already revolving world.
    Real Time politics

  2. Here's 4 things for those who are running small campaigns (offices as small as Mayor or smaller)…………………………

    Signs that you post in public areas and in peoples yards can be stolen.
    Letters that you send to peoples homes can not be (that's mail fraud).

    Signs don't say anything more than your name, the office you're running for, and the date of the election. Letters that you send to peoples homes can say anything you want them to. You can write 100 words, you can write 300 words. Most signs never have more than
    8 words.

    Signs are not cost effective because you place those signs in places that people who don't live in your voting area can see. You're advertising to people that are not allowed to vote for you. Letters can be sent to only those people who live in the voting district that you live in.

    Since letters can be hung on the refrigerator until election day, you can advertise your campaign to more than one registered voter in every single family home (or apartment) that you send letters to. This includes people that are not legally registered to vote the day they receive the letter but could be legally registered by the date that the election comes up.

    Save yourself some trouble. If your campaign is for an office that does not extend beyond one individual town send letters first and then buy and place signs later.

  3. I think politicians do not fully understand digital technology but they are very aware of it and actively trying to control it's influence. Look at SOPA and other acts drawn up in the US. I don't trust politicians now, and i have some doubts about the integrity of the current voting system. I do not want to see online voting because that is easier for them to fake votes and gives them data on my voting choices.

  4. The only thing i see, is that facebook is an addiction and can destroy social and personal relatioships. I dont see any "revolution" just people stucked to their computers and living a digital version of their life. 

  5. and i dont think is accurate to say that facebook frew faster than anything else in the planet. Comparing a free internet platform to an empire is not really correct. And what about other things, like mobile phones? There are more facebook users or mobile users?
