Looking Outwards- Capitol Words

Screen shot of "Capitol Words" web site


Capitol Words is a robust information design project on the web that visualizes daily word counts in Congress in a number of different ways. What I like about this is that in a few minutes of browsing you can get a very good idea of the most discussed topics in Congress of the day or the past week or month, and get and idea of who is talking about it. The web site has an option to see individual lawmakers’ word counts as well as overall who the loudest or quietest lawmakers are. I think this is especially useful and relevant to the public because it updates every day, making it a tool to help keep up with activity in Congress as well as an entertaining diversion.
