Take A Look At Yahoo! Election Dashboard

I just read that Obama is 4% ahead of McCain. It seems like every day there’s a new poll that talks about a few percentage points separating the presidential candidates. But what does that mean? At this stage in the election, I really miss Tim Russert who used simple language and easy-to-understand diagrams to describe the complex political environment.

In the spirit of easy-to-use political charts, Yahoo! has put together a really good rich Internet application (RIA) for examining the election state-by-state. It provides a ton of insight into the battle for the White House.

The bottom line: This is a great example of a very useful and usable RIA.

I'm an experience (XM) management catalyst; helping organizations improve results by engaging the hearts and minds of their employees, customers, and partners. I enjoy researching and speaking about leading-edge XM topics. I lead the Qualtrics XM Institute, which is the world's best job. We're igniting a global community of XM Professionals who are inspired and empowered to radically improve the human experience. To achieve this goal, my team focuses on thought leadership, training, and community building. My work is driven by a set of fundamental beliefs: 1) Everything starts and ends with human beings, so you need to understand how people think, feel, and behave; 2) XM is a discipline that needs to be woven throughout an organization's entire operating fabric; and 3) Building the XM discipline requires a combination of culture, competency, and technology.
