Interesting news hitting today about the conditions inside the Whitehouse for the Obama team move in. Technologically the Bush administration was not completely up to speed. Obama staffers have found old computers, outdated software and general inefficiency with regard to technology. The use of social media has been virtually non existent and many old and arcane government rules still stand in the way of Obama’s highly technical team.
Obama will be the first truly tech savvy chief executive this country has had. This should be an exciting thing for the generation of digital natives that help put him into office. It should also boad well for technology policy over the next four years. Change is comming to Washington, on every possible level.
