Change comes to whitehouse.gov

At noon today even before Obama took his oath, whitehouse.gov switched from being Bush-ruled to Obama-centric. The new site incorporates much of the interactive and web savviness displayed on Obama campaign website. The site is all about functionality and clear design. It lets everyone find Obama's stance on everything from farms to the economy to healthcare in one click while allowing the American public to read his blog.

According to a Reuters article, the public can also has five days to comment on all executive orders and proclamations, as well as all non-emergency legislation, published on the website before Obama signs them. All that and a slide show about past presidential pets makes this one rockin' Whitehouse website.

[Thanks to my husband who pointed this out to me and showed me the AWESOME pet slideshow]
