1) Patience- A piece of my own advice I need to take. As one of Obama’s aides says in the story, "Day 1 will not look like Day 100." More interactive presidential communications could arrive; maybe not full-throated social media, but perhaps some old red tape can get cut away.
2. A legislative wiki. Perhaps this is more the domain of Congress, but what about letting the general public go to a wiki and suggest legislation, then harvest only the best ideas to roll into bills? It’s an intriguing twist on "call your Congressman." Maybe it’s a lot of work, but perhaps a workable version could appear.
What is your idea of a social media initiative the federal government (feasibly) could do?
