White House – Open For Questions!

This is quite possibly the coolest thing ever. Keyword: transparency. I would explain in detail, but this video (in less than 1.5 minutes!) does a bang-up job doing that on its own. (Because, shouldn’t it?)

Much like our own BM executive Town Hall meetings, the President is asking Americans to submit questions and vote on others (like a Digg model), and he will address these questions LIVE via Whitehouse.gov on Thursday at 11:30 AM EDT. Soooo coooool.

As of this posting, there were 17,700 people who have submitted 20,708 questions and cast 669,084 votes.

Pretty impressive stuff. I just love that he’s listening.

  1. Hurrah for listening!

  2. Very cool! Can’t wait to see the results. My only concern is that all the questions will come from a certain ‘wired’ demographic but glad he is calling this “an experiment.”
