White House 2.0

whitehouse_vimeo1

President Obama is ushering in plenty of change with his new administration, and much of his promise for transparency centers around technology. He successfully leveraged technology early on the campaign trail by soliciting donations and dispatching information via cell phones and online campaigns, and he has continued to embrace new media since being elected. In addition to making whitehouse.gov a user-friendly, informative site for information about legislation, the administration’s agenda and newsworthy events, Obama’s team has also launched a dedicated channel on vimeo with press events, the President’s weekly address, and even space for viewer comments.
