Very exciting…Maplight.org, quite a neat site using screen scraping, XML, etc., to compare legislators’ voting records with campaign donations received from interest groups, etc.  Definitely at a cutting edge between internet technologies, government information, and public policy.  Here’s their cool video tour,
and a NY Times write-up.  Also see Open Congress
