New Whitehouse Blog
The Obama administration has put up the first official White House blog. Blogging is almost respectable now.
The blog is run by Macon Phillips, whose LinkedIn profile notes his experience in online political advocacy. Phillips's Twitter profile is only for personal friends. The Obama people don't want Macon to have an Ezra Klein moment. The Obama transition team screened applicants for potentially damaging emails and blog posts. Team Obama will be very careful about how they use the internet.
