Transition Watch: Obama team gives Change.gov a Web 2.0 twist

President-elect Barack Obama’s transition team continues to push the limits of interactive government by loosening its copyright requirements and expanding community-based postings to its Change.gov Web site, according to Computerworld.

The site now operates under a more liberal Creative Commons license and offers a way for readers to form communities of interest around various issues.

The new features add to the team’s previous attempt to open more direct channels to the public through the use of Web 2.0 tools, Computerworld said.
