ProPublica Launches Eye on the Bailout
ProPublica is an independent, non-profit newsroom that produces investigative journalism in the public interest.
Yesterday, NPR’s Marketplace aired a segment featuring their “Eye on the Bailout” – a Ruby on Rails application to track the $1.1 trillion taxpayer-funded bailout. Behind this Rails app is a one smart development and investigative team. The app is fully RESTful (allowing developers to pull and syndicate bailout related data in several formats), and it also pulls in feeds from several different news sources.
Highgroove was all too eager to help, but the real credit goes out to the amazing development team, led by Dan Nguyen and Scott Klein.
