White House website

The White House website switched over to Obama's new version during the Inauguration. The New York Times blog discussed the changes:

It looks like it includes more modern Web 2.0 elements. A blog is featured prominently. It sounds like the want to encourage more interaction. They have rotating images, and there is a boxy widget style on the bottom portion of the page.

I discovered this page that had archived the different versions of the Clinton website. They were fun to look at - it was like a trip through internet history! I especially loved the one with the little waving flags:
