change.gov has put together a new tool where citizen’s can submit their ideas, vote other user’s ideas up and down, and make comments on ideas. It’s called Citizen’s Briefing Book:
Share your ideas on any issue facing the new administration, then rate or comment on other ideas. The best rated ideas will be gathered into a Citizen’s Briefing Book to be delivered to President Obama after he is sworn in.
Citizen Briefing Book’s concept and functionality are remarkably similar to change.org‘s Ideas For Change. I don’t know if this is a coincidence, if it’s a copy/flattery, if it’s meant to distract from the change.org effort, or what.
But regardless, the fact that the president is running a site like this is amazing!
I just put together the official Get FISA Right submission. Vote on it here.
