Wouldn't it be nice if you could go online and easily locate potential lobbying ties with those who visit the White House. Or maybe closer to home, get easy to understand descriptions of the laws your state legislators have been creating.

Waldo Jaquith has been creating just such a revolution in participatory democracy.
