Who is running Change.gov?

As everyone probably knows by now, Change.gov the website of “The Office of the President-Elect” is having problems. It is evidently being overwhelmed by traffic. This morning it took me several tries before a page would load and the site delivered error messages instead.

The site also had a page of Agendas, which it has since removed and replaced with a singe page http://change.gov/agenda/ without any details.

Although the site is a dot-gov site, it says, “Content copyright © 2008 by Obama-Biden Transition Project, a 501c(4) organization. All rights reserved.”

So, who is running the site? Why the lousy service? Why the scrubbing of agendas? Why the copyright?

Netcraft reports that the I.P. for Change.gov ( is owned by Blue State Digital which also hosts the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
