I was sitting and watching the festivities today as President Barack Obama, our 44th President is sworn into office, and couldn’t help but notice that they were discussing the fact that the White House website was changed over to the new administration at 12:03 p.m. EST. They indicated that the menu for the luncheon was the number 1 visited page on the site, then I noticed that TechCrunch reported on the website and discussed the White House blog. We have made it to the White House!
As I prepare to head off to Chicago on Thursday to attend another event for Blog World Expo, I wonder about the changes (the key word that got him elected) that will take place and how social media will begin to seep into the mainstream more and more as our new President implements more in the digital world. I for one am looking forward to it. i will be talking about the new changes and the new President Obama on my radio show tonight so come and join me at 5:00 PST and 8:00 EST.
