Friday, November 07, 2008 President Elect Obama's new site

I've been following Barack Obama for about as long as I've written Have Fun * Do Good:

• I wrote about his podcast in September 2005: Obama's podcasts and Clinton's version of Slamdance.

• Listed Dreams of My Father as one of my Favorite Do-Good Books of 2006.

• Saw him speak in 2007: Obama in Oakland.

• And saw him speak again in 2008 at the September 11 Presidential Forum on Service.

But today is the first day it feels real. Barack Obama is going to be the President of the United States.



He has an amazing new site up, Office of the President-Elect. It has a newsroom and a blog, and information about their agenda, how to apply for jobs, and how to be of service.

It also has a place to "tell your story" about what this election and campaign means to you, as well as a way to share your vision for where Obama should lead the country.

It gives me the shivers. To be asked. What I think. By my government.

I don't think I've ever written that. My government. My government.

    We're no longer jaded, shaping youth, so let the sun shine. I found the Obama website today and answered all the questions, wrote my story, offered my vision and applied for a job. I couldn't be happier with these awesome changes. It's amazing how our own website - - has taken off since the election. Peace be with you all.

  4. Thanks for your kind words, Amy.

    That's awesome that you're jumping right in, Mark!
