Congressional Research Service Report from the Open CRS Network
The Open CRS Network is an attempt to collect the various Congressional Research Service reports. The reports are not available to the public until released by a member of Congress. The Open CRS Network highlights various other CRS report collections that exist. If you have requested a report from your congressman, you can add it to Open CRS Network's collection by a web form.
In time for the 300th anniversary of Benjamin Franklin's birth, a Web portal (http://ben.clusty.com) based on clustering technology is offering a new method to separate useful Franklin facts from the normal flood of online information.
Franklin was an important figure not only in U.S. history, but also for science and engineering. From studies of electricity, weather and ocean currents to his development of the lightning rod, double spectacles (bifocals) and the odometer, many of his innovations and discoveries were groundbreaking.
The NSF release talks about the web portal's development with information on Vivisimo, Clusty, and the related NSF grant.
