I’m famous

I’ve been mentioned by name in an article about the Statute Law Database in The Times of London yesterday.

The latest in a series of missed deadlines for public access to statute law is now set for September. “The delay is unnecessary,” says Julian Todd, an IT developer and co-creator of the civic websites publicwhip.org and theyworkforyou.com. The sites mine Hansard to provide an easy way to view an MP’s voting or attendance record and keep track of debates or issues in Parliament. “I can’t comprehend what the DCA thinks it is gaining by not giving us a database dump of the law.”

Far out!
