One Too Many Websites

white-house-dot-gov

Obama seems to be making more websites these days than policy changes, and while I’m a loyal supporter, I can’t help but wonder if the Internet may soon implode violently in a self-preservationist reaction to one too many .gov domain registrations.

Most recently there is Financialstability.gov about the Financial Stability Plan, adding to the list of HealthReform.gov, and Recovery.gov, among others. Could Obama’s White House really just be a legion of wannabe web designers?

A Presidential administration that leverages technology to live up to the true sentiment of a democracy is a beautiful thing. But during the election I visited BarackObama.com on an almost weekly basis, while recently I find WhiteHouse.gov to be a lot less forthcoming and engaging. What do you think, is this just part of the transition to being Mr. President, or can this Comander in Chief engage us better online?
