Check out this collection of Barack Obama during his freshman year at Occidental College. The photos were taken in 1980 by then photography student Lisa Jack and they are now on exhibit at the M+B Gallery in Los Angeles. Read more about Jack’s photos.

Wah? Obama is seeking to expand the government’s wiretapping powers.

Take a look at the President’s Crackberry. It seems to be a $3,300 Sectera Edge that is NSA-approved and has the ability to communicate classified emails and phone calls.

At precisely noon yesterday a change happened in this country. The whitehouse.gov website has changed with the new President and it brings a few touches of clean design and function from Obama’s campaign site. Another thing under the hood has changed too, the robots.txt file for the whitehouse.gov website is different now too. The last robot.txt file under the Bush White House prevented search engines from indexing more than 2400 files and directories on the site. The new administration’s site prevents the indexing of only one directory. This is an encouraging, if small, sign of a more transparent government from the Obama administration.
