Is Obama The Technology President?

28 Feb

Did you know that George Bush did not use email for the last 3 years of his presidency due to a discrepancy in his email records from 2003-2005? Everything that the president communicates electronically is public record, so if they’re not communicating freely electronically, I guess they don’t have to worry about it. Now President Obama has been approved to use a special mobile device to electronically communicate with close staff and friends. Does this mean in years to come we will discover his secrets?

Presidential technology steps:

  • Communicates on Social Media Sites
  • Allowed to submit ideas to Change.gov before taking oath
  • Created Technology Innovation Government reform team
  • Redesigned Whitehouse.gov – blog, rss, photo gallery and videos
  • Launched recovery.gov to support economic stimulus plan

Fireside Internet Chat?

17 Nov

President-elect Barack Obama is doing another presidential first when his team recently announced that he will be holding his weekly addresses exclusively online. Senator Obama has been superior with his use of online technology during his campaign such as texting supporters of his choice as Biden as VP, Twitterring his whereabouts and registering an astronomical amount of online transactions.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt (F.D.R.) started the trend back in the 1940s using radio as his medium of choice to speak to the nation, President Regan did the same and now President Obama will use the Internet; he will use the same medium that propelled him into the Oval Office. A new study released by Forrester says that the average age of people watching video online is 35 years old.

Will you watch our new president online or stick to TV?

Unsure On The Vote? Try FactCheck.org

29 Oct

Are you one of thousands of swing voters who are waiting until the last minute to make a decision on the 2008 Presidential Election? If you need help and you are unsure of what candidate is saying what, then logon to factcheck.org.

You may have heard the FactCheck website mentioned in the past. In the last presidential election, Dick Cheney misspoke the fact check URL and said “.com” instead of “.org”. The “.com” URL was overloaded and the website crashed. The owner ended up putting a redirect to the “.org” and the rest is history. Now the website has become a fixture of American politics and a source of unbiased information.

If you are wavering on who you want to vote for, check out this website.
