The Power of the Internet

Buried deep in an article about John Kerry’s fundraising efforts in tomorrow’s New York Times is the following:

Of the more than $100 million Mr. Kerry raised since Super Tuesday, roughly three-quarters has come as a result of mail and Internet solicitations. Mr. Kerry has now raised $44 million through the Internet and $31 million through mail and phone solicitations.

Kerry’s raised more through the Internet than anywhere else. How’s that as a commentary on the Internet truly becoming “mainstream”?
