Since the presidential election, there’s been a lot of action on making it easier for the public to get information about what the government is doing.
For examples, check out Data.gov, Sunlight Labs, and Subsidyscope.
But here’s one I hadn’t seen before that’s pretty fun. It’s call Congress Speaks.
It lets you pick two members of the 110th congress and get detailed information about what they’ve been saying. Well, detailed in the sense of actual word counts and statistical information.
I’m not sure it’s actually useful, but it is cute and fun.
Go check it out.
