Barack Obama, who made effective use of the Internet in his campaign via videos and e-mail updates and political social networking, is taking the Democrats traditional weekly radio address to the Web.
The President-elect will record the address Friday on video as well as audio and post it on www.change.gov beginning Saturday.
According to the transition team, that will become the norm for the Democratic address when he is in the White House as well.
"This is just one of many ways that President-elect Obama will communicate directly with the American people and make the White House and the political process more transparent," said his transition team Friday in a statement announcing the move.
