Stimulus Watch – Keeping an Eye On the Economic Recovery Spending
http://www.StimulusWatch.org/

StimulusWatch.org was built to to help the new administration keep its pledge to invest stimulus money smartly, and to hold public officials to account for the taxpayer money they spend. We do this by allowing you, citizens around the country with local knowledge about the proposed “shovel-ready” projects in your city, to find, discuss and rate those projects. These projects are not part of the stimulus bill. They are candidates for funding by federal grant programs once the bill passes.

Capitol Words – Word Frequency From the Congressional Record

Capitol Words – Word Frequency From the Congressional Record
http://www.capitolwords.org/

For every day Congress is in session, Capitol Words visualizes the most frequently used words in the Congressional Record, giving you an at-a-glance view of which issues lawmakers address on a daily, weekly, monthly and yearly basis. Capitol Words lets you see what are the most popular words spoken by lawmakers on the House and Senate floor. But wait, there’s more! Capitol Words also gives you the ability to view with greater granularity which words are most frequently used by Congress as a whole, by state delegation or by specific lawmaker. It also reports on word usage trends: You can search by specific word to see its usage frequency over time, including which lawmakers most mention that term. You can also compare usage of individual terms (e.g., health vs. education) or groups of terms (e.g., health + education vs. war + terror). You can see who are the most vocal or quietest members of Congress (i.e., those who have the most or least words attributed to them in the Congressional Record, including via extended remarks). The Capitol Words site is powered by data collected by Sunlight’s LOUIS database from GPO Access. Its API provides several methods of accessing detailed information from the Capitol Words database. All data, the calendar view of the word of the day and charts showing word usage trends go back to the second session of the 106th Congress (January 24, 2000). Views that attribute word usage to lawmakers date back to the beginning of the 110th Congress (January 3, 2007).

MakeUseOf.com – Cool Websites, Software and Internet Tips
http://www.makeuseof.com/

makeuseof.com is very different from most of the other tech blogs/websites. It’s unique and original in what it reviewes and how it does it. On makeuseof they don’t write about any new web applications that comes around but only about ones that are COOL, FREE and USEFUL. Or as it says in their tagline: cool websites, software and internet tips. It may be a subjective judgement but that’s how it is. They also try to keep it simple and all accessible, so that even newbies who never used such sites like Digg and Delicious or ones who think AJAX is famous washing powder brand can easily find their way around.
