President-Elect Obama’s Transition Website

Www

One of the bright points of Obama’s campaign was his well documented, very savvy use of the web not only to raise funds but to organize his ground game. That innovative use of technology continues with his transition into power, with a transition website launching the day after the election. Visit change.gov, and consider how quickly it was set up, and that it is a .gov site, for which an organization must have official status as part of the US government. This administration clearly prioritizes technology and communication.

Interestingly, however, despite the success of his campaign site’s social network, change.gov does not seem to have any membership or networking capabilities. Yet.
