White House Goes to the Blogs

Tuesday’s Washington Post interviews James Orr, the White House Internet guru who runs White House Interactive.

Orr talks about the growing influence of bloggers: “They’re important here. I can tell you that a lot of people read them.”

Good blogs are active blogs. So Orr hopes to get the White House blog working in real-time with more frequent updates communicating with the public about what the president is doing throughout the day.

“We need to be more live,” he says. And it’s doable “‘Cause we’re here. We just need to communicate that better with the public.”

While we are not predisposed to reveal our political leanings, we are glad to read that Orr places Hypergene MediaBlog high on his list of favorite sites.
