“One significant addition to WhiteHouse.gov reflects a campaign promise from the President: we will publish all non-emergency legislation to the website for five days, and allow the public to review and comment before the President signs it.”
via EOP – Blog Post – Change has come to WhiteHouse.gov.
Now that’s something I didn’t expect. Sounds like a very interesting idea! You can subscribe to the Whitehouse.gov Blog for more info on what’s going on in the new Obama Administration.
Change.gov you can believe in?. It looks like the President-elect is planning to keep his word about making government more transparent. This is great. Feel free to share your ideas if you have any. It looks like they’ve even got a blog to keep track of everything the transition team is working on. Let’s just add that to my Google Reader! 🙂
Lawrence Lessig (founder of Creative Commons and Professor of Law at Stanford) has become a strong supporter of Obama. He gave a talk at UPenn a few weeks ago surrounding the importance of Tuesday’s primary in Pennsylvania (via blip.tv). It’s kind of long, but I enjoyed it. I think it also demonstrates a really effective use of Powerpoint (or whatever presentation program he used).
An interesting take on the upcoming presidential election with regards to technology was written up by Randall Munroe of xkcd. I’m not much for politics but this gives me another darn good reason to like Obama.
