Since getting my new HTC Droid Incredible, I’ve been gleefully exploring the growing number of applications available for Android. This week I was thrilled to discover CONGRESS, a new Open Source Android application by Sunlight Labs.
Technology and Politics are two of my passions. I’m a huge proponent of open and transparent government and regularly blog about Government 2.0 developments.
I would love to see someone take this Open Source application and expand it to
serve both State & Local Government. Michigan Gubernatorial candidates Rick Snyder and Mike Cox are calling for open / “reinvented” state government. Hopefully, if one of them becomes our next Governor, this will be the type of Government 2.0 application the citizens of Michigan can look forward to!
If you own an android phone, you can use your ScanLife application to download the Congress App using this code
