When Obama wins genesis  MAY 10 2008

How this whole When Obama wins thing got started: some Adaptive Path folk musing about state name changes if Obama won:

Dan was twittering something about Alabama, but wrote "Alambama". He joked that when Barack Obama wins the election, certain states will probably be renamed - Alobama, Califobama, Nevama, Massabama, New Yobama. Of course, I thought that was hilarious and started thinking about other things that would change once Obama wins. So, a few of us started twittering silly little things, thinking of it as an inside joke.

Overnight, a few people caught on giving it a life of its own.

And if you're so inclined, you could Digg When Obama wins and help melt my web server.

Update: It's on Reddit as well.
