President-elect may keep sending direct e-mails

Sun expanded coverage

In a late-night, post-victory e-mail, president-elect Barack Obama told supporters he would "be in touch soon about what comes next."

Could the message, sent to people who signed up to join, be a hint that America's next president will use the Internet to communicate with the masses?

Here's the text of the Obama note:

"I'm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.

We just made history.

And I don't want you to forget how we did it.

You made history every single day during this campaign -- every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it's time for change.

I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.

We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I'll be in touch soon about what comes next.

But I want to be very clear about one thing...

All of this happened because of you.

Thank you,
