It’s an interesting feature, but I can’t see too much in it that I can’t already do at Facebook, FriendFeed, and Google Reader.

I think it’s a great start, aside from import as other mentioned, what features could be added that take advantage of what OpenCongress has in a uniquely?

Please don’t shout in your comments. There’s no need to yell.

Additionally, it would be nice if you supported your points with more than abstract metaphors of bed making and if you elaborated on who exactly “they” are in your protest.

First, there hasn’t been a legal dispute among domestics because no one has been able to prove they’ve been harmed by the program…. because information that would prove that has been classified as secret by the Justice Department.

Second, unless they define terrorist, they can claim anyone who has ever been maligned in some fashion is a terrorist. Without an explicit definition, things wil most certainly not bode well for the aplication of this law as it was intended.

Third, let’s look at a key example, where the government literally plugged into the Internet stream at AT&T to listen in on everyone. That captures foreign data, sure, but the specs that were leaked showed technology to capture ALL data flows, including domestic to domestic.

I think the idea that “it’s only academic” is a horrible line of reasoning. Not only does this destroy barriers of privacy, but increasing the data that governmetn can collect does nothing if it can’t process it quick enough, which is where the government is still having the MOST trouble… but no one seems to want to write a bill about that.

So, giving up my privacy for a negligible gain in safety? No thank you.

I don’t think anything substantial will come of this particular bill, but I don’t think it’s a step in the right direction either.
