Hail, the New Communicator in Chief

Whether or not Barack Obama keeps his BlackBerry, he’s definitely keeping his promise of “change” when it comes to using the Internet.

At exactly 12:01PM today, the president’s team threw the switch on a new WhiteHouse.gov website, pledging to create “the most transparent and accountable administration in American history.”

The site includes a form for submitting questions to the president and his staff, a blog, a video archive and an invitation to register for e-mail updates, all reminiscent of Obama’s successful election campaign.
