As I mentioned earlier, I’ve changed the web application framework underneath this website to Django; an awesome, Python-based, easy-to-use toolkit for dynamic websites. There are several pretty high-profile sites using Django (it was originally developed for The Lawrence Journal-World [newspaper in Lawrence, KS]), and the latest big site has been announced. The US Congress Votes Database tracks voting for every member of Congress, allows you to subscribe to a member’s voting record as an RSS feed, and contains records of every vote since 1991. Pretty cool, and a testament to the power of this framework.
