change.gov continues to disappoint

In spite of the optimism about technology policy (See for example, Obama preparing comprehensive technology policy, By Hiawatha Bray The Boston Globe, International Herald Tribune, November 12, 2008), the site continues to disappoint me.

Today I was searching on the site and got this message when I composed my second search:

    You are only allowed to search every 15 seconds.

Really? I continue to hope that they will fix problems and copyright claims. Maybe this isn’t a harbinger of things to come but just one of many temporary transition problems.
