Of interest to local folks

Antoine got so annoyed by how difficult it is to navigate the City of Madison's website that he created a Twitter bot that posts updates to the city's calendar of meetings. [So, basically, agendas & minutes from committee meetings that are open to the public.]

It's [ profile] madlegbot, if you are interested.

That is freaking awesome. When I was actively involved in city politics, the only foolproof way to learn of meetings was to read the long memo tacked up and in the locked bulletin boards in either the Madison Municpal Building or across the street at the City-County building.

This represents a significant improvement.
