    I’m mostly working on tools for political expression and participation this week.

    “Call Congress Now”- a website that uses Twilio and Om to let you call congressmen from the safety of your browser. More proof of concept than anything else.

    /u/CongressionalHound- a bot on reddit that hunts down mentions of members of Congress and provides relevant information. It’s all open source (pretty simple python stuff). Right now I’ve programmed all the main features I wanted, but I’m mostly negotiating with moderators of subreddits. They’ve been burned by some really dumb bots before and so they are understandably cautious about allowing an unknown nobody put a bot on their subreddit.
