Governing during the Internet Age: Whitehouse.gov Receives a Makeover

At the same moment that Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States, whitehouse.gov – the official website of the President – received an extreme makeover. The site will now allow users to find the President’s schedule, video addresses, executive orders, and other news. And, of course, the revised site comes with a blog.

President Obama used the Internet to an unprecedented degree during the campaign, as a media and organizing tool. For some of the challenges he will face governing during the Internet age, see Wired.com’s, The Wired Presidency: Can Obama Really Reboot the White House?
