Google's new White House tour

When I saw that the White House announced a new Google Street View of the White House interior rooms, with a focus on the artwork, I got a tingle of excitement. This is Michelle Obama's project -- a 21st Century approach to opening the White House to the public, in the tradition of what Jacqueline Kennedy did in 1962 with a televised tour, which won her an Emmy.

I think there is even more than could be done using technology to bring the White House, and its stories, alive.

You can check it out here, along with the First Lady's video overview, above.
