Congratulations to Sunlight Labs!


I’ve been traveling and so I am a little slow in adding my kudos to Sunlight’s Clay Johnson and the entire Sunlight Labs team he leads for winning Google O’Reilly Open Source Awards‘ “Best Community Builder” award, which was announced earlier this week at the O’Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON). All of Sunlight is thrilled by this recognition.

This award is a fabulous achievement. As Clay wrote at the Labs’ blog, “This is only the beginning. In six months we’ve been able to do some amazing things– 47 applications have been designed and inspired by our community, and developers are starting to wake up and realize that they’re the key to making our government accountable, accessible and responsible.”

Here is a link to a photo Clay took of the trophy itself.

Again, congratulations to everyone involved. Expect more great stuff!
