Holding the US government to account with cutting edge technology

In the new age of technology we need to build digital tools that make it easy to navigate the complex machinery of US government, hold lawmakers to account and expose corruption. Passing legislation to require real-time, online transparency for all government info, tools to connect that information to audiences, and an electorate actively engaged in scrutinizing that information is the goal.

Nature and Context

Using tech to track legislation, campaign contributions and lobbying, and identifying political ads as they air, in the same way that Shazam tells you a song, holds the US government to a level of transparency never before believed attainable. Scrutinizing government reporting, routinely testing and ranking federal websites, and fact-checking government agencies’ reports are all steps technology has helped us make toward a more free and ethical nation.
