Obama is the Geek's candidate

Obama unveiled a technology plan yesterday. Does anyone else have a technology plan, other than to protect the RIAA, the MPAA and the phone companies? Hmmm, don't think so. Here's one of my favorite ideas in his plan:

Obama wants the public to be able to comment on the White House Web site for five days before legislation is signed.

That would be cool. What I like about the plan in general is that it's about embracing what's already going on in technology and making plans for innovating, so that we don't fall behind as a country. It's both technically and economically savvy.

I'm still undecided about who I like among the Democrats. It's likely the primary will be so late here that it won't matter who I like, but I'd like to be prepared anyway. I figure over Christmas break, I'll start thinking about it more deeply. But I'm liking what Obama's doing so far.
