Rebel MPs without a pause

theywork_daypop

Democracy-Hack and all-round great idea TheyWorkForYou.com launched this sunday at the excellent and exhausting NotCon, and seems to be climbing the charts nicely.

For those of you who haven’t poked around there yet – it’s a service that takes the report of the day’s proceedings in the UK Parliament, Hansard, and rechunks it with the ability to be annotated and commented on by the electorate, plus a bunch of other great tools for tracking your MP or issues you care about through Parliament.

After all the noise and fury around “digital democracy”, the Howard Dean campaign and the like from our friends across the water, it’s nice to see a thoughtful, useful and downright inspired piece of work like TWFY getting some coverage.

Great work by a gang I’m proud to know, and great to see Chuck D. and Hank Shocklee as the support band.
