President-elect Obama is already shaking up the way things are done in D.C. Obama will record the president's weekly address to the nation for radio, but will also record video and post it to YouTube.com and Obama's site, change.gov.
The video will be made public Saturday morning, when the radio address is released. In addition, Obama will do regular online Q & A and video interviews.
Implications - Obama is definitely using the Internet and social media to his advantage. A spokeswoman named Jen Psaki says of Obama, "this is just one of many ways that he will communicate directly with the American people and make the White House and the political process more transparent."
