Can Obama Really Reboot the White House?
The Wired Presidency: Can Obama Really Reboot the White House? Wired looks the various obstacles for opening up governance on the internet: a ban on endorsements could limit external links, all written communication must be stored so all previous versions of web pages must be archived, the first amendment might limit comment filters, etc. Update #1: WhiteHouse.gov has been updated (my side-by-side comparison photo went sorta viral), with a blog post on change. Update #2: Kottke notes the robots.txt change. Update #3: Change.gov is now shut down.
