Yesterday at Daily Kos there was one of those "best ideas ever." The author called it "Open Source Campaigns." It will probably (hopefully?) pick up traction and be prominent there and at MyDD.
No reason BlueNC and NC in general should not be at the leading edge.
The idea is simple: organize the skills of the netroots folks into a clearinghouse for helping candidates with tasks that do not need on-site volunteers: web site design, graphic arts, data analysis and database management, etc.
As a first-time candidate in a local election (Forsyth County Board of Education) I can attest to the need for such services with my website effort and in other areas. Something along the lines of what was described by the diarist would be a huge force-multiplier.
