<a href="http://www.boingboing.net/2008/06/26/gao-releases-some-of.html">BoinBoing Notes</a> they have released 619,000 pages of histories, which were the pilot project scans they conducted. Looking at this data shows just how incredibly valuable these legislative histories are and how wonderfully talented the government employees are who compiled the information. The bad news is the government *gave* millions of dollars worth of help to Thomson West which is raking in the bucks with the big database. <a href="http://public.resource.org/gao.gov/index.html">This Site Has All</a> the details.
