Change.gov: Released Early, Hopefully Often

Picture 12

Barack has already launched a transition website, Change.gov.

As Jeremiah Owyang put it on Twitter, "Our president has a blog."

What a change.

Here's what's best about Change.gov: There's a lot missing.
The blog only has one post, the Share Your Story page is a lame
form, the content is thin, and a lot of social features are missing.

This is a good sign — it means the Obama team lives by the
release early and often credo.

They're acting like a startup, not a
lumbering 20th-century corporation. They're comfortable on the web, and they realize that it's better to
have something up that gathers data and feedback
than to be silent.
