The White House – Open For Questions

The White House has launched a new web site where anyone can submit and vote up their most important questions for President Obama.

Activity on the site will culminate in Obama addressing the top questions on Thursday, March 26.

The site is powered by Google Moderator and the usability closely follows the social voting on Digg.

It’s perception that’s important here.

I’ve taken part if a few Downing Street E-Petitions but the tone still feels like “Us Against Them”. And the result is the Government usually tells you politely to “get stuffed”. And that they were right all along.

Only time will tell how Obama chooses to use this platform.
