White House RSS Feeds


Continuing the tradition wherein each Presidents seek to dominate new forms of communication, the new Whitehouse web site has several RSS feeds. At the moment there are six linked off the home page; five that seem to come from the Communications Shop, and one from the Office of Management and Budget. Either this demonstrates just how seriously the Obama Administration takes the job of the OMB, or that Peter Orzag is a big nerd.

Count one vote for "big nerd."

And I mean that in the best way possible. We need more big nerds at important posts right now.

Orzag is not that big, but he is a serious nerd. Orzag is respected by everyone in Congress for his brains, his work ethic and his honesty. He is the uber nerd. He is a nerd among nerds. He is Nerd.

But does he read xkcd? That's what I want to know.

Put me down for 'both.'

And what C.S. said about nerds. (Since I'm a statistician with a PhD in math, it's not like you're going to see me dump on nerds anyway. :-)

Oh I mean nerd as a term of endearment in this context.

Aw, guys, I bet he can get down and funky on his off hours!

Just kidding.

And yes, I'm a bit nerdy too.
