Online Tool: My OpenCongress

From the Inbox. Congressional watchdogging meets MySpace:

My OpenCongress is the first-ever social network designed for people who care about Congress. Now, OpenCongress makes it super easy to track any bill, senator, representative or issue area on the site, simply by clicking "track this" at the top of any page. Use your OpenCongress profile to make your voice heard: vote "aye" or "nay" for every bill in Congress, give a personal approval rating to senators and representatives on a scale of 1-100, and see the total votes for each bill and lawmaker.
In addition, OpenCongress now allows comments on pages for bills, senators, representatives, etc. as a means of sharing information and drawing a comprehensive picture of congressional goings on.
