Internet politics geeks, myself included, were dazzled by all the innovative stuff that the Obama transition team did on their website Change.gov–posting raw documents, allowing people to comment on raw documents, opening comment threads, allowing people to ask and vote on questions for transition officials, etc. The first 64 days of the Obama Administration have not been as much fun as the transition, a function less of Team Obama’s intentions than the technological and bureaucratic barriers to being innovative online inside of government. But the drought is beginning to end. As of 6:45 p.m. on Tuesday, Whitehouse.gov is now taking your questions.
