The new White House website: DUH!

2009_01_28What a refreshing change!  The new Whitehouse.gov is amazing; what an amazing interactive website between users and the President.  As a savvy internet professional, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself.

 

What are some other internet advances, real or imagined that would help the relationship between governors and governed?

 

  1. Adequately updated, user-friendly websites
  2. Blogs!
  3. Cross marketing: in voting manuals, I LOVE when candidates use 25 out of the 250 characters they can use to list their website.
  4. Voting online?  Will this ever happen?
  5. Real time public opinion polling—imagine that, a congressional call to vote, with a “poll the audience” feature too.

 

What are some of the advantages and disadvantages technology could provide for our government?
