I’m impressed that president-elect Obama has created change.gov, a site that seems to invite participation in Obama’s transition and presidency.
Even more impressive is that the site seeks stories (and even photos and videos!) from the electorate “about what this campaign and this election means to you.” This is not your father’s presidency.
I uploaded my story — with a photo.
But with most sites that feature user-generated content, you would instantly see your story among everyone else’s. Where did my story go? It just seemed to disappear into the ether, and who knows if I’ll ever see it again or get to read the stories of others.
Great idea, Mr. President-Elect. But please take it to the next level.
