President 2.0

So the news today is about how Obama will be upgrading the weekly radio address from the White House to

Old and Busted

a YouTube video.  Obama has made by far the best use of the Web 2.0 world in his campaign and I think the idea of moving this to the world of government is a great step forward.  Some have called it putting a face on the government.

I think the idea of making the White House seem more personal through these tools is great.  Why hasn’t anyone done this yet?

The government is way behind in the world of technology (except when it comes to military strength).

I believe Wired.com may have proposed something similar to this, but their needs

to be a Technology Czar of some sort that finds ways to connect government with todays tech methods AND keep abreast of where technology is moving to keep the US competetive.  It’s a well known fact that the US has some of the worst internet service and prices in the developed world.  It just ain’t right.

How do you think the government needs to step into this century of technololgy?

Govermnentium & You

I heard this yesterday listening to Dave Ramsey.  Hilarious.  My favorite part is:

This characteristic of morons promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass

Classic.
