The Obama Administration is previewing the Citizen Response tool it built so people can tell the White House what a particular section of the president’s Tuesday night State of the Union address means to them.
The interface highlights each sentence as the reader moves a cursor over the speech. If the reader clicks on a section a box pops up asking for his or her name, email address and a statement of 400 words or less about why that section matters. A note says the email will be used for “follow ups and general updates.”
