Several legal data projects were worked on at the 2013 New York Times Developers Hack Day, held 16 November 2013 in New York City.
The Twitter hashtag for the event was #NYTDevs
Here are the legal data projects I was able to identify, with URLs where available:
- API for Docket Wrench, Sunlight Foundation‘s regulatory comment analysis tool
- Catobills, a Ruby wrapper to the Deepbills Project API, by Derek Willis
- New York Times Inside Congress bill pages
- New York Times Bill Explorer, “by Ted Henderson, Lorelei Kelly, Linda Peng and Paul Schreiber” [HT Chrys Wu]
- Know Your Representatives, a “Windows 8 app” that provides information about legislators, using data from APIs produced by Klout, the New York Public Library, and the Sunlight Foundation (HT @amit)
- Tweet the Press, which “uses Sunlight Foundation and Twitter APIs to let you interact with members of Congress” (HT @timesopen)
- SayWhat? — “by Polina Giralt, Candida Haynes, Nick Collins and Anne Moroney” — which “uses Sunlight API to look into what legislators say publicly about their bills” (HT @timesopen and Chrys Wu)
