Your place in civilisation
We're nerds for democracy. People should hear about the work that is being done by volunteers to open up and make accessible governance information - and the tools that are being built to support it. Hopefully this can inspire others to take a greater interest in their democracy.
geo2gov.com.au won 2nd place and the data transformation bonus prize in the recent MashUpAustralia competition. It is a service that takes a location and tells you where in Australia's representative democracy you lie.
Jeffery is one of the programmers behind http://geo2gov.com.au which was a winning entry in the Mashup Australia contest.
