White House struggles to bring new tech on board

The Obama adminstration came to office with high expectations that it would transform government with Web 2.0 technologies. But the reality in the early going is much different, according to a Washington Post article.

The White House doesn’t have the ability to send mass e-mail updates, and text messaging has also proved impossible.

Staff members acknowledge being caught off-guard and are struggling with technology upgrades in addition to sorting through security and privacy issues they didn’t face on the campaign trail.
