    Plausible deniability. Of course you were the impetus.

      We’ll never know for sure but the timing of their changes is quite a coincidence.

        I don’t believe in coincidences.

          Does that mean you believe everything happens for a reason OR that we shape our world to be how we want it to be, hence nothing is random?

          And yes, I realize that’s a bit of a meta-physical question, no worries if you’d rather leave it at what you already said.

            I believe in fate — but there are micro choices.

    HI Adam,

    Nice post! Though I can see you would think that you were the reason, I know it to be the opposite. I will say that your blog was brought up right after the “turn around.” :-)

    Hope all is well.

      Hi Ja-Nae,

      Thanks!

      Well, here’s the deal from my end. Once I spotted this change earlier today, I got a bit excited, connected a few dots and figured “someone at the Flaherty campaign reads this blog and pushed through a change based on my advice, cool!”

      But, considering the “turn around” happened so quickly after my post (just over 30 hours), I think it’s believable that the change was in the works before my post.

      In either case, I honestly don’t care why/who gets credit for it. I wrote the post hoping that a change would be made because the more engaged politicians are with citizens, whether it’s on Twitter or elsewhere, the better off we all are. Long story short, I’m just glad the change happened. :-)

      Thanks for stopping by to give a bit more of the story.

    Hey, Adam,

    Cool post. I’m a Brookline native who moved to Chicago in 2002. Some friends of mine are moving to Boston next week and I’ve written my ideas about some of the best Boston has to offer. http://tinyurl.com/lqfytf

    I and they welcome any current suggestions you have.

    Thanks.

    I hate to be that guy that doesn’t really add anything to the conversation. But I don’t have much to say other than “you go boy”. In reality though I can’t imagine you had nothing to do with it. Hard to imagine. Although I’m not sure how large a campaign ship that is to steer, meaning I’m not sure how quickly they would be able to react to a post like your earlier one.

    ” Note: After writing this post, Michael Flaherty’s Twitter profile responded to my inquiry and stated my article had nothing to do with the change in approach. ”

    Well they would say that wouldn’t they?
