      Hey all,

      I posted today to the Labs blog about a new API we've been using
      inside the Labs, that I just made public, called the Drumbone API:

      http://sunlightlabs.com/blog/2010/drumbone-api/

      Basically, it's JSON/JSONP for legislators, bills, and votes, with
      lots of denormalization and support for partial responses. Ideal for
      mobile apps and JS-based widgets, which is exactly what we use
      Drumbone for. The service is written in Ruby, with Sinatra, on
      MongoDB.

      The bill and vote data is all GovTrack data, so if you use it, I
      encourage you to attribute them and not Sunlight.

      Hope it's of some use to people!
