govfreshOver the weekend, GovFresh launched, a live feed of official news from U.S. Government via Twitter, YouTube, RSS, Facebook, Flickr accounts in one place. It provides live feeds from the White House, the Supreme Court, the House and Senate, seven departments and six agencies, and the Democratic and Republican National Committees, so far.

Luke Fretwell, a San Francisco-based Web designer and developer, created GovFresh on his own. New media technology specialist Steve Lunceford tweeted that it’s “neat,” and I would agree. In another tweet, Steve described it as “a Friendfeed-like mirror of #gov20 feeds.”

You can follow GovFresh via FriendFeed and Twitter as well.

This is indeed a neat idea. Congrats to Luke for creating this useful new tool.
