At her recent Netroots Nation keynote address, Burner pitched her plan of action to an audience of progressive bloggers: a smartphone app allowing shoppers to swipe bar codes to check whether the Kochs, or other right-wing supporters, are behind a product on the shelves.
[...] She put her expertise to use designing a mock interface for the app (above, right). Now she’s just waiting on the right team to build the back end.
Since her Netroots speech, she’s had some phone calls from developers hoping to step in and create the app. (“I’ve found that if you pitch an idea in front of 2400 very smart bloggers, usually they’ll make it happen,” she said.)
Yeah, I know, "Darcy's a loser," blah, blah, blah... "Darcy's too liberal for her district," blah, blah, blah... "Darcy should be ringing doorbells in Skagit County instead of delivering speeches in Providence, RI, because candidates never go anywhere outside their district or do anything but campaign anytime ever," blah, blah, blah. Whatever. It was a great speech, and the audience (Joel Connelly excluded) loved it.
