Pooling FOI requests…

One thing the Republic’s government could usefully do is to find some way of investing in a MySociety franchise. The advantages of a Theyworkforyou.com over the currently, very clunky Oireachtas debate sites are obvious. And they’ve now launched a Whatdotheyknow site for collating FOI requests in a manageable, searchible format. It’s still in prototype, but they want you to look and it and use and feedback to them on how to make it better.
