Links to the Outside
When the White House blog was launched, I complained about the conspicuous lack of HTML links in the text, a mistake that I often chide in my students' blogging efforts. Luckily, they soon got the hang of basic citation of sources.
Now the White House blog seems to have a much stronger sense of its own position in relation to the blogosphere. Not only are they linking to outside sources like Roll Call, but also they are appealing directly to female bloggers, as the video above indicates.
Next question: When will the White House YouTube channel allow response videos or indicate its connection to the YouTube ecology?
At least it is great to no longer see the White House relying on a default YouTube player.
