Today's boingboing has a link to a fabulous concept site, Outside.in. I feel that by saying this is a location-based information-collector (based on certain neighbourhoods) I am not giving them enough credit. Take a look at their site for yourself and see what a great concept they have come up with. Afterwards, think about how this kind of system could be used for political purposes. I feel that it will make it much easier for interested voters to find out about issues in their area and how the different candidates relate to this issues. Outside.in looks like it will work much better than a simple search engine or list of links for these kinds of purposes, and I look forward to following their progress.
