Technologies of Transition: Change.gov on the iPhone
December 16th, 2008

President Elect Barack Obama has recently authorized the release [After the Obama-Biden Transition Team adopted the Creative Commons – Attribution license for Change.gov] a version of Change.gov that was rendered for the iPhone on the Cerado Ventana platform. Change.gov is Obama’s effort to harness social-media to promote and establish an open, transparent public relations conduit. Personally, I am curious whether this application will really help encourage individuals to inform themselves of the “changes” occurring within the Obama administration. Furthermore, I wonder if such applications are truly “technologies of cooperation” with the ability to promote and sustain meaningful democratic participation.

Change.gov, the website of the Obama administration’s transition team, is now available for the iPhone.
