A New Face For Open States


Wonder what the Open States team has been working on since we finished our initial goal of providing information for all 50 states back in March? As promised, we've been focusing on a new and expanding our API to support full text search and we're finally ready to show you the results.

To the cloud!


It's time that Sunlight Labs got its act together and joined the 21st century. Today we are proud to announce that we are partnering with cloud hosting provider Angelfire to move all of our sites to the cloud.

Of course, cloud computing offers concrete, well-defined benefits like agility, focus and flexibility. And cloud solutions can achieve things that traditional servers never could, like allowing users to leave their desks. Developers love the cloud, too: by now most are familiar with how simple it is to deploy to the cloud; many also appreciate how cloud datastores create more demand for developers. Plus, cloud solutions offer enhanced security both through obscurity, and technical monoculture.

This is a bold, forward looking move that we feel will help us accomplish our goals of transparency long into the future.
