OpenCongress will be shutting down on March 1st. But don't worry: We're doing so for a number of good reasons. From then on, we'll be redirecting users to the excellent GovTrack, where you can continue to monitor Congress.

Going to Washington

February 29, 2008 - by Donny Shaw

David and I are going to be in D.C. starting this weekend for a couple of conferences: eDmocracyCamp and Politics Online. We’re excited and looking forward to sharing ideas with other people using the Internet to make politics more participatory. At eDemocracyCamp we’ll be working with everyone there on “how the web can help us better govern ourselves, support democratic structures, make online civic participation more accessible, convenient, fun, efficient etc.” At the Politics Online Conference we’ll be attending sessions and demo-ing the latest features of OpenCongress at our booth. If you are at either conference (or in D.C. this weekend), we’d love to meet you. Send an email to:

Also, as I’ll be traveling and in meetings most of the week, blogging here may be a little slow. But, as always, you can submit a tip on anything related to Congress that you would like us to cover on the blog, and as long as it’s relevant, we’ll post it.
