On Monday, the WashingtonWatch.com wiki went “live” – with a lot of promo efforts dedicated to getting it in front of an ever-broader audience. Along with a release out on PR Newswire, it got a friendly write-up on TechCrunch, where Mike Arrington is rubbing his hands together in anticipation of the fun.
I’m pleased to see that several people and groups have begun editing bills of interest to them. It looks like the National Association of Realtors has a say about the Community Choice in Real Estate Act, though they don’t seem to be winning the day with site visitors, judging by the votes.
The Center for Science in the Public Interest is making the case against cutting the beer tax. Love the comment on that page. A couple of different editors have added information to S. 9, The Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2007. It’s one of the consistently popular bills on the site.
Of interest to folks here on TLF might be the write-up of S. 744, The SAVE LIVES Act. That’s Senator McCain’s public safety spectrum bill. I’m not equipped to determine whether the editor of that bill makes any sense. Luckily, anyone with an Internet connection can, and they can improve it too, if they want. It’s a wiki.
