18F and the United States Digital Service (they are different, here’s a description) are doing amazing things to advance government web properties. I think it’s a pretty non-political statement to say their work could be a lasting legacy item for President Obama. 18F have now released new web design standards that are really outstanding. I had a lot of fun perusing them to see the kind of stuff they’ve created federal opinions on. This is a great move, and I have really loved tracking all the amazing stuff these organizations are doing. It’s also awesome that one of WordPress’s own — Andrew Nacin — works for the USDS.
