President-Elect Obama wants your opinion

President-Elect Barack Obama is making strides to have an open government. At Obama is leveraging the internet just as he did in his campaign to achieve this. The President-Elect is reaching out to us at this new website which gives the opportunity to voice your opinions and concerns. Though the information is not available yet detailed plans (such as economic and health care plans) are to be posted on the site in a promised "plain english, non-Washington-speak" format. We shall see.

Love him or hate him he works in a very post-baby boomer manner leveraging technology to (hopefully) disclose more information than we have ever seen from a President on his administrations' intents. With any kind of luck this will catch on and dictate the manner in which all elected officials run their offices. Open and easily accessible.
