Very cool, Mr President is living up to one of hisÂ promisesÂ from the very first day, a more open government, with a blog and user feedback, take a look at this blog posting for more information. I'm liking the new site as well.
The three statements in the post are this
Communication --Â Americans are eager for information about the state of the economy, national security and a host of other issues. This site will feature timely and in-depth content meant to keep everyone up-to-date and educated. Check out theÂ briefing room, keep tabs onÂ the blog(RSS feed) and take a moment toÂ sign up for e-mail updatesÂ from the President and his administration so you can be sure to know about major announcements and decisions.
Transparency --Â President Obama has committed to making his administration the most open and transparent in history, and WhiteHouse.gov will play a major role in delivering on that promise. The President's executive orders and proclamations will be published for everyone to review, and thatâ€™s just the beginning of our efforts to provide a window for all Americans into the business of the government. You can also learn about some of the senior leadership in the new administration and about the Presidentâ€™sÂ policy priorities.
Participation --Â President Obama started his career as a community organizer on the South Side of Chicago, where he saw firsthand what people can do when they come together for a common cause. Citizen participation will be a priority for the Administration, and the internet will play an important role in that. 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.
