Fast work

It didn't take long for the Obama team to make its mark on the White House website, whitehouse.gov. There's even a White House blog with (currently) five posts, all timestamped 12:01 PM. The first post is by Director of New Media Macon Phillips, in which he gives a brief tour of the new, improved White House website. There's no comment function on the blog, which is probably just as well; either they'd be forever culling trollery and spam, or else the comments would be clogged with trollery and spam. Markos at the Daily Kos worries that the blog will end up becoming "a press release graveyard".

In any case, whitehouse.gov now has an honored place on my blogroll.
