Whitehouse.gov Relaunches On Familiar Software

The home page of 1600 Pennsylvania avenue did a relaunch over the weekend. The most exciting part is that its now running on Drupal, the same software that powers IntoxiNation and Crooksandliars

The day after Obama was inaugurated as our 44th President I did a post about having a more tech savvy commander in chief, and in it talked about how the government should really embrace and move towards open source software like Drupal. It’s great to see that they are doing this.

Given the extensibility of Drupal and existing modules that can provide anything from a full social network site to a major campaign site, including email letters, I say we can expect to see a much more user oriented whitehouse.gov.
