Awesome work from Matt and Kat over at OpenAustralia (see my June 2008 interview) who are…

… the first website to make the Register of Senators’ Interests available online. This important public document until now has only been available to the small number of people who were able to visit the office in Canberra where the documents are held. In the Register each Senator declares information of financial interests, stocks and shares held, gifts received over a certain value, and memberships of Clubs and Associations.

An important step forward in transparency for the Australian federal government!
