Today the new WhiteHouse.gov launched and although it isn’t exactly XHTML compliant it beats the pants off of most government websites and follows along with the new President’s plans of deploying a modern communications infrastructure (it’s also using jQuery and jQuery.thickbox as noted above).
Copy on the new site explains: “WhiteHouse.gov will be a central part of President Obama’s pledge to make his the most transparent and accountable administration in American history.”
Regarding Technology, Obama has already talked about:
- protecting the openness of the internet.
- supporting the principle of network neutrality to preserve the benefits of open competition on the internet.
- deploying a modern communications infrastructure.
- getting true broadband to every community in America.
Here’s looking at a tech-positive presidency!
