She Works For Me

Not so long ago I added an RSS feed produced by to my blogroll. The feed tracks my local MP's contributions and last week I got my first hit from when she contributed to a 9 May House of Commons debate on the health service.

I was interested to see how they present the debate like a weblog, so you can review the whole thing or look at each contribution as a separate "post" on which you can comment as you might on any other blog.

That is very clever, because what they are essentially doing is subsuming some of the bread and butter of the UK political system into the blogosphere and - as importantly - allowing it to be monitored and manupulated by our evolving software tools.

I am going to subscribe to the site news feed to keep track of how the service evolves into the future.
