Daily Kos transforming to “activist powerhouse”

This is from Markos himself: news that Daily Kos is bidding to send you spam. Maybe not exactly that, but the lead political blog of our time is taking up a new mission — to get stuff done. It’s announced this afternoon in a few short paragraphs. One of them saying:

“This marks a new phase for Daily Kos. And with the big DK4 re-engineering project getting ever closer to fruition (the bug squashing is continuing at a furious pace as we continue to expand our beta testing corps), our transformation from a humble blog, to a big community site, to an activist powerhouse is well on track.”

There’s little doubt this country needs some new pep. Getting our first black president wasn’t good enough, apparently. The Tea Party isn’t the answer, either. Let Kos try. Its weapon is the email list.

UPDATE: Chris Bowers has left Open Left to be part of the Daily Kos venture. Link to his announcement. He’s going to run the email list.
