I am on a quest to discover some new tools to share with a
media-oriented audience at the "Other Future of News Gathering" in
Minneapolis on Saturday. That event is co-located with the Minnesota
Civic Hackathon I am organizing -
- as part of a weekend of events
promoted by the Sunlight Foundation.
It is often mentioned that the decline of the economic model
supporting journalism, particularly newspapers, will mean fewer public
meetings and government actions will be subject to the accountability
that comes from active reporting. What emerging online tools and
projects are helping address the potential loss of government
I am collecting examples here in two categories:
- Transparency Tools for Reporting
- Government Data Reused
Either reply here or add them to the wiki (no registration required).
I am particularly interested in some new state and local examples that
complement many of national sites we hear so much about.
