Headline: Bitcoin & Blockchain Searches Exceed Trump! Blockchain Stocks Are Next!

We ran a few stories on GROUNDWORK but outside of the tech press the fact that the head of Google built a company just to get Hillary Clinton elected got relatively little press. In light of the developing Obama wiretapping scandal GROUNDWORK should get more attention.

And for crying out loud look at GROUNDWORK’s logo. Could it look any more sinister? It’d be tough.

(From Quartz)

An under-the-radar startup funded by billionaire Eric Schmidt has become a major technology vendor for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, underscoring the bonds between Silicon Valley and Democratic politics.

The Groundwork, according to Democratic campaign operatives and technologists, is part of efforts by Schmidt—the executive chairman of Google parent-company Alphabet—to ensure that Clinton has the engineering talent needed to win the election. And it is one of a series of quiet investments by Schmidt that recognize how modern political campaigns are run, with data analytics and digital outreach as vital ingredients that allow candidates to find, court, and turn out critical voter blocs.

But campaigns—lacking stock options and long-term job security—find it hard to attract the elite engineering talent that Facebook, Google, and countless startups rely on. That’s also part of the problem that Schmidt and the Groundwork are helping Clinton’s team to solve.
