In a few days from now, our President Elect is going to take office and become the 44th president of the United States of America. The ENTP crew is pretty stoked – our Campfire chat is usually about half politics and half real-work. For quite a few months now, we’ve (Justin in particular) been playing with various APIs that feed into how our government works such as GovTrack and Sunlight Labs. Obie threw down the gauntlet today, but I guess we’ve been hammering down that road for quite some time now.
There’s a few other treats that Justin and Towski have been hacking on, but in the meantime I’d like to introduce you to a cool little tool Justin hacked up one weekend: @legislate.
@legislate tracks roll calls in the Senate & House. It’s a simple way to keep track of our congress and see what they do with their time. We love twitter, we love transparency in the government — so we love @legislate.
