As we previously reported in December 2008, the Apps for America contest was created to encourage the development of open source applications that help constituents monitor and communicate with their members of Congress. Contest entries have to use at least one of the required APIs, which included the Sunlight Labs API , OpenSecrets.org API, FollowTheMoney.org API, and Capitol Words API.
Congress Facebook is a new mashup that combines 11 different web APIs that wants "to make Congress more accountable and transparent". The app tracks a lot of data for each member: voting records, FEC reports, Campaign Finance summary, their opinions on the issues, and even their state's federal spending reports. The design of the site is basic, but the it's data rich. And among other things, it's an entry in a contest we reported on last month Sunlight Labs' Apps for America contest.
Do you want to use the power of open APIs and mashups to help make the US Congress more accountable, interactive and transparent? If so, then you'll want to enter the new Apps for America Mashup Contest from the good folks at the Sunlight Foundation. Like last year's Mashup Congress contest, this is another notable competition from Sunlight, whose nonprofit mission is to help organizations use Internet technologies to make information about Congress and the federal government more accessible to the American people to create a "catalyst for greater political transparency and to foster more openness and accountability in government."
