Change.gov will become Whitehouse.gov

According to Federal Computer Week, at 12:01PM Tuesday when Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th president, Obama’s change.gov site will become the new whitehouse.gov.

This is huge. Until now whitehouse.gov has been a one-way static site for dispensing information, announcements, and press releases with little or no interaction and no way to get involved. It’s also a very dull and old-fashioned looking.

Change.gov, on the other hand is highly interactive and encourages participation. It’s a clean modern-looking Web 2.0 site that has been described as a bold experiment in interactive government or “open source democracy”.

This is one change I can believe in.
