Team Obama Networks FTW

When adults gameBack in Blogging 101 they told us the best way to generate repeat visits is to foster community. Obama & Crew have that on lockdown. Team Obama e-mailed:

"We wanted to tell you about a new feature on which lets you bring your ideas directly to the President.

It's called the Citizen's Briefing Book, and it's an online forum where you can share your ideas, and rate or offer comments on the ideas of others.

The best-rated ones will rise to the top, and after the Inauguration, we'll print them out and gather them into a binder like the ones the President receives every day from experts and advisors. If you participate, your idea could be included in the Citizen's Briefing Book to be delivered to President Obama.

Visit the Citizen's Briefing Book now and share your ideas

My idea: publish official guides on generating media hype and interesting youth in government. I'm already impressed and he hasn't even been sworn in.

I'm slightly less impressed by all the people calling for the legalization of drugs.

I think team Obama has this one (fostering a community!) well and truly covered! It's good that people feel listened to now!
