Technology And Elections

How about an election technology discussion that doesn't include Diebold in it? :-)

Here's something very cool. Last week, Bonnie Bogle noted on the N-TEN blog that the Institute On Money In State Politics (followthemoney.org) released a public facing set of API's for accessing their incredibly rich database. Since it's election week, I thought I'd put up a web widget showing "Contributions By Party And Status For Oregon" which you can see in my sidebar, and below:

Now, how is that for a great use of technology!

Don't forget to vote tomorrow (or if you're in Oregon, by tomorrow!)!
