New for mashing: Congress RSS feeds
We've launched the U.S. Congress Votes Database, which lets you browse every vote in the U.S. Congress since 1991. One of the site's features is an RSS feed for every active member of Congress, updated each time he or she votes. There's also a feed of the latest votes.
See the RSS page for full information about the feeds.
Of course, this data is open to remixing, so, if you're a developer/tinkerer, feel free to download feeds and come up with something interesting. In fact, a couple of people have already done so:
- Garrick Van Buren put together MNRep - How Minnesota's Congressional Representatives Voted.
- A fellow named Jacob in Illinois put together a small aggregation of how his representatives are voting.
Please let us know if you create a mashup, so we can spotlight it here. Also get in touch if you think of any other related RSS feeds we can offer. E-mail me at adrian.holovaty (at) wpni (dot) com.
