Getting started

I'm going to wait until I have a few complete posts drafted before I begin the blog in earnest, because I want to make sure that I have enough content to get the ball rolling. Just to give you a taste of what is to come, future posts will cover:

  • How is Obama's "change" campaign like or unlike a corporate change effort? Based on this, what should we expect to see from the Obama Administration's efforts?
  • If Obama wants to create more opportunities for citizens to get involved and participate, what can we learn from examining websites driven by user-generated content?
  • What does it really mean to offer improved transparency? There is a ton of information already available about the workings of our government, but most people aren't interested enough to read it. Is this just a usability issue, or will Obama have to create a new culture of involvement?
  • Is really a big change? What can Obama's team do to make it truly new and important? How will it be used after the transition?
  • Obama's campaign was innovative in the way it contacted people. Can he translate this into a forum for getting input from people?
And much more to come. I will attempt to answer some of these questions, provide links to other's answers, and ask open questions to start a discussion (assuming I have any readers!)

Thanks for reading, and please check back soon!
