Where is Obama on Social Media and E-Government?

Posted: Updated:

Browsing through President-elect Barack Obama's technology platform released during his campaign, I notice zero references to "social media," "Government 2.0" or "e-government," the three most-popular terms given to the civic engagement space that social media-meets-government is all about.

Judging from press releases and blog posts, many nations around the world are explicitly using the term, e-government:

At a time when the World Bank describes the pending Obama Administration as embracing e-government themes, why does the President-elect's own tech roadmap fail to mention it by name?

Call me curious. How about you?
