Our mission

Free Government Information (FGI) is a place for initiating dialogue and building consensus among the various players (libraries, government agencies, non-profit organizations, researchers, journalists, etc.) who have a stake in the preservation of and perpetual free access to government information. FGI promotes free government information through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.

Capitol Words

Today, The Sunlight Foundation announces a new project called Capitol Words which gives an at-a-glance view into the daily proceedings of the United States Congress through the simplest lens available-a single word.

For every day that Congress is in session, Capitol Words displays the most frequently used word in the Congressional Record.

For more about the project see John Wonderlich’s post on The Open House Project website.

Of course, it has a widget (see below what it looks like and get the code here), an RSS feed, and an API. Try it, use it, re-use it!
