Last week while millions of you were watching President Obama’s Inauguration, I was watching an entirely different show. I did watch the Inauguration but in my office I had my monitor set on the whitehouse.gov website. This was an exciting time in our family as my brother, Rob, the White House Website Executive Producer and a team of many were ready to launch the new administration’s site at exactly noon. At 1159 my monitor showed this….
Right at noon while Yo Yo Ma was playing I clicked my refresh button. The screen went blank, I waited, I hoped, I crossed my fingers, I prayed, I held my breath, this was huge, the world was watching, and then…
Yippee he did it! They did it! This was a very successful launch. So after months of preparation, sleeping in his office 2 nights in a row during Inauguration, and eating goodness knows what, Rob can now add this major success to his collection. Last Saturday Himself and I enjoyed watching my brother’s footage of the launch, video of him walking opposite the DC crowds to get to the White House, and other great video he took of being there. I really enjoyed watching twitter on Inauguration Day as virtual high fives went out to Rob and the media team. Millions of people made it a great day for our new President and I was so proud that my brother was one of them. Check out the new White House website and blog.
PS- About a week before Inauguration Day, Obama popped down to meet his new media team and got the privilege to meet my brother and shake his hand.
