Trail Obama

March 4, 2009

A buddy of mine who graduated from IU with me, Bryan Bloom, recently took matters into his own hands regarding his future.  Fed up with the rough economy, and the inconsistent job market, he decided to start the site, provides the public with insight into exactly what President Obama is doing day-to-day.  The TrailObama staff selects the most relevant, unbiased content to showcase action items that the President is acting upon. Interestingly enough, the TrailObama team is comprised of both democrats and republicans in a bi-partisan effort to show the people that you can indeed come across the aisle to achieve a common goal. “Our goal is to get down to the meat and potatoes – to sift through the most relevant eye catching action items of President Obama so that the user can decide whether or not Barack Obama is doing a good job” says TrailObama content manager Bryan Bloom. The site was created when the TrailObama team noticed that when trying to keep up with current Presidential happenings, they couldn’t easily find what’s been checked off the President’s to-do list.  Just like twitter invites you to answer the burning question, “What are you doing?”, TrailObama invites you to find the answers to one simple question: What is President Obama doing?  TrailObama gives you the uncanny ability to cut through opinions and hearsay and get straight to the facts so you can formulate your own opinions about his actions.  Currently, the site allows you to get a daily serving of the President’s tasks at hand, vote on weekly polls regarding the presidency, peruse news pertaining to President Obama from a variety of sources, scroll over a visual timeline of President Obama’s first 100 days in office, and discuss each news item with other visitors. The team is expected to roll out a slew of new features and content over the next weeks, months, and years, including stock charts to see how the economy and each specific market has fared since Obama took office on January 20th, 2009.

  Good luck to Bryan as he embarks on a fascinating trip on the adventure of the first African American President of the United States of America.  This site is very fitting for “The Fear of Complacency”, because complacency is a word that President Obama doesn’t want in his vocabulary throughout his first term.
