Civic coders for better government

(thanks Catherine M)
Sunlight labs announces the winners of the Apps for America contest, an annual call to "civic coders" to develop applications that make the U.S. government more transparent and accountable. Winners were rated according to the following criteria:

  1. Usefulness to constituents for watching over and communicating with their members of Congress
  2. Potential impact of ethical standards on Congress
  3. Originality of the application
  4. Potential usability of the application
  5. Code quality of application 
What a laudable project from Sunlight Labs! Also, read all about, coming soon!!!
