[qi:012] Updated: Katie over on Earth2Tech just tipped me off to President-elect Barack Obama’s CTO web site a web site dedicated to President-elect Obama’s pick for CTO. This site was set up by a company called Front Seat using the free version of User Voice’s social software. They are using Digg-like social voting to figure out what the top priorities for this new job will be. There are some interesting ideas there and hopefully some of them will actually make it to Washington from this unofficial platform. I like this idea — now let’s hope that people actually listen and not just use view these suggestions as cute tricks. But I don’t like the fact that Front Seat doesn’t let people know that it is not an official Obama site. (Related link: How Obama Can Use the Net to Improve the Government.)
