Speaking of the White House, the new administration is very into using the web to connect with the public.  The new WhiteHouse.gov site was up within minutes of the inauguration.  They've set up a blog on the site, with an RSS feed, so you can stay on top of the comings-and-goings of the White House.

Super Bowl

The next big event is Super Bowl XLIII, Feb. 1.  The Boss runs the halftime show, and here, you can discuss which playlist you think he should play!  Among the hits you can choose from are Glory Days, Dancing in the Dark, The Rising and of course, Born to Run.
