Obama 2.0 – The YouTube Prez

By | November 14, 2008

In a follow up to my other post on Obama looking promising on the tech front, this came across my desk today.

Basically the plan seems to be to have weekly YouTube addresses.  I actually like this plan.  I am a little leery of it in light of the Twitter Feed not having been updated since the election.  However, if it is done, perhaps that will be the nudge people need to keep more informed on what their government is doing.  Sure it will probably be partly PR, but that is to be expected.  Yet, if it allows people to stay more connected with what is going on in Washington, perhaps it will also equate to people taking more ownership and responsibility in their government as well.

It is still a government in transition, so we are going to have to wait and see how it pans out in the long term.  I think we can expect though other parties and politicians to finally start taking note on what technology is capable of.  Perhaps even start making use of it.
