Ellen Miller and Sunlight have yet another innovative project. For this one, they set up a collaborative muckraking project whereby any technical politico (or political techie) could participate by researching nepotism in the congress. Its a great example of how the ‘masses’, with the help of collaborative software, can do important work that would take a single journalists weeks. This project, focusing on spousal relationships of the 435 congress members, took 2 days!
