house.gov remains inaccessible to millions tonight as they try to figure out what their government is doing on the worst day in Wall Street history.
I think it's the patriotic duty of Silicon Valley, including Google, hosting providers such as Rackspace, and ISPs, to get house.gov back on its feet by tomorrow morning. What could be more important than letting the American people know what their government is doing on this day of days?
Beyond the woes of house.gov, I'm disappointed that news accounts of the defeat of HR 3997, the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, don't even refer to the bill by name or number, instead simply calling it the "bailout bill." (And that's a bit of a misnomer itself.) The roll call of who voted yea or nay is here, but in this day of information at your fingertips, it should be a Google Maps mashup, showing the yeas and nays by Congressional district, readily viewable the same way the result of a presidential election is available.
