The big brains at the MIT Media Lab are doing their bit to help make ours a sousveillance society -- one in which observation from beneath counterbalances state spying. Inspired by the Pentagon's proposed Terrorism Information Awareness project, they've launched a site called Government Information Awareness, at opengov.media.mit.edu/. There you can find constantly updated information on judges, legislators, executive agencies, corporate lobbyists, and (perhaps more important) the many connections between them.
