I’m late on the bandwagon on this one – but head on over to Richmond Sunlight, an awesome site for keeping sight of what’s happening in our state government. Shaun Kenny, Brian Patton, and my old buddy Tabitha Peace are all raving about this site, I agree with all three:

  • It’s much easier to use than the Legislative Information Services site
  • Tag Clouds. But beyond that, it’s easy to add relevant tags
  • Up-to-date progress on the bills
  • An easy-to-read mark up of changes (to existing legislation)
  • A clean, simple interface (hey, it’s Waldo Jacquith creation, so that’s only natural, right?

I use DLS/LIS sites a lot, and sometimes finding what I need there is an incredibly slow and annoying process. Richmond Sunlight makes finding the same information a snap, click, smile experience. This is a definitive ‘keeper.’

I’m off to spam eMail this site to the mayor, tc, and my commission and committee buddies now 😉

I read some of the posts and I think it is a great site. Be good to my funny works I have a nice joke for you) What do you call a dog with no legs? It doesn’t matter what you call him he ain’t gonna come.
