Open for Questions is a feature of U.S. President-elect Barack Obama's transition Web site. Open for Questions is a Digg-style, user-submitted press conference, where users submit questions and vote them up or down, and the most popular questions in each round are answered by the transition team. The current round was opened December 29. A question about OA is presently ranked in the top 40 Science & Technology questions:
