Our State Fair

This summer, I took a trip to the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. Have you ever been? Of course, there are rides, lots of livestock, an occasional politician and weird things on a stick.

One of my favorite encounters this year was this display on phones. We all know how far phones have come as technology has increased. Here are a few that gave me a good laugh:


Before predictive dialers…
Sen. Chuck Grassley was making major donor calls from the road.
Before there was conTEXT… there was teletype.
CampaignHQ call floor, 1920s style
Phones I’ve actually used

It’s fun to look back on where we’ve been and even more exciting to think about where we’re going in the future. Don’t worry – CampaignHQ will be leading the way, quickly changing and updating with technology. Let us know if we can help you get with the times.
