It looks like every federal department is getting into the blog act -- now, the Federal Election Commission has debuted its "Disclosure Data Weblog." According to its first post, the blog will highlight new disclosure features and Web site tools, as well as answers to common questions about the FEC's site.
It's a bit on the technical side. But if, like me, you're the type of political junkie who loves to use spare moments to peruse the FEC's searchable map, or to scan campaign finance forms, this site could become a must-click. Despite its streamlined and somewhat intimidating look, the FEC's Web site is often praised for its efficiency and thoroughness. Let's hope their experiment with user feedback increases this crucial government disclosure process.
