it came from.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;So, let's start by a bit of context. Political Memory is a tool built by
&lt;a href=""&gt;La Quadrature du Net&lt;/a&gt;. It is its major
campaigning tool.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;La Quadrature du Net is a citizen group defending fundamental rights on
the Internet by:&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;raising citizen awareness about their political representatives'
&lt;li&gt;trying to get citizens involved in the political life and demand of
their representatives that they represent and defend their rights&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;acting very closely with these representatives&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;organising campaigns during which citizens contact their
representatives before certain votes or for given occasions,
educating or warning MPs about issues&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;getting MEPs to sign written declarations (for instance, La
Quadrature campaigned on a written declaration about
&lt;a href=""&gt;ACTA&lt;/a&gt; which over half the MEPs
&lt;li&gt;and most importantly, trying to increase the political cost of
decisions. Making sure elected representatives think long and hard
about what their constituents will think of their decisions. The
Hadopi “three-strike” law in France is a very good example of that.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;p&gt;In order to reach these goals, Political Memory tries to make it easy
for citizens to:&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;follow la Quadrature's work, and campaigns&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;understand their representatives' actions&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;make it easy to contact their representatives&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;raise the political cost of representatives' decisions by keeping
them under close scrutiny&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;p&gt;In order to work, Political Memory gets its data from two sources:&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The European Parliament, via Parltrack, for the European MPs&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;The French Parliament, via, for the French MPs&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;p&gt;This data is then used for several things:&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;MEP listings and contact details&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;voting data&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;show these representatives' score according to our voting
&lt;p&gt;Once all this data is input, MEPs are rated, votes are recorded and
citizens can see what a given MEP has been up to, how they've voted on
specific issues (those on which la Quadrature works).&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Citizens can easily reach out to their representative, at any time, or
during a specific campaign.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Eventually, this will increase the connexion between citizens and their
representatives, putting citizens' concern back at the centre of

is about, you can read &lt;a href="" title="Changing Democracy With Code: A Word From The Developers"&gt;Changing Democracy with Code: a Word from the

&lt;p&gt;We're not &lt;em&gt;that&lt;/em&gt; regular in posting, you'll notice…&lt;br /&gt;
In fact, we're quite busy these days, because we welcomed new (and
active!) contributors to the project, who did a lot.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;New contributors and happy hacking&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;You can find all of this improvement on the development instance:
&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Here is a summary of the modifications (more small things have been done
and some contributors mutually improved each others patchs):&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Mindiell&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
*#415: Make the "random MEP" the same for one day&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Turbobilly&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
* disable endless paging button&lt;br /&gt;
* sort meps by last name in votes results&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Yohan Boniface&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
* prototype for a new map on the front page that uses d3.js (basically
now your cpu won't go crazy when you visit the hompepage)&lt;br /&gt;
&lt;em&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
Laurent Martelli&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
* "download as csv" on every search result&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Okhin&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
* display the average score of the meps of a search result&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;Gu1&lt;/em&gt;:&lt;br /&gt;
* performances improvement on search results page&lt;br /&gt;
* make memopol working with parltrack new historical data (they have
been put back on the website of the EP, this is a very important news!)&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Thanks to all of them, they really made the project go forward, we'ere
amazed \o/&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Turbobilly also made a proto with microdata, to give MEP's score on
Google Search results for Memopol !&lt;br /&gt;
This will strengthten Memopol's influence, because the MEP's scores
will be easily reachable.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;And to finish, we have to tell you what was done in the communication
field the last mouths !&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;Memopol at the #29c3 \o/&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We set up a workshop about Memopol during the 29th Chaos Communication
Congress this winter.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;People from all around Europe came to hear about our tool : most of them
didn't know what it was and came because they were curious.&lt;br /&gt;
I was a bit disappointed to see that there were not so much people
motivated to contribute into Memopol (come on, we're hackers, after all!
), but the conversation was indeed interesting.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;People from Austria and Germany were quite motivated to have their
instance of Memopol for their own parliament, and explained how it could
be difficult to do some open data, because a lot of votes are done by
hand, which makes it difficult to track. Some French people came too,
they were quite focused on law issues, it was the occasion to say that
La Quadrature works to reform the copyright and comments were also
welcome ;)&lt;br /&gt;
There was some technical questions, I answered as I can. The mailing
list and the IRC channel were proposed for further details.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;So it was a good occasion to show how the tool works and why it's
wonderful, but I'm sad having not found enthusiastic hackers to help us
with the code :(&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;Memopol in a webdocumentary \o/&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Julie Neven, young and promising journalist, has made a documentary in
which Bram explains why Memopol is so important in our citizens' lifes
\&amp;lt;3&lt;br /&gt;
It's in French, sorry for those who don't understand.&lt;br /&gt;
Here →
&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;br /&gt;
As you can guess, the rest of the documentary is good to see !&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;Memopol, everywhere&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;I'm a bit happy with this duty of making Memopol spread everywhere and I
talk about the project everytime I can. So some people heard about
Memopol at the &lt;a href=""&gt;THSF&lt;/a&gt;, and at the last Ubuntu
Party when I was talking about La Quadrature. Someone said : "Memopol ?
It's a great tool !" --which was very pleasant to hear \o/&lt;/p&gt;</description><dc:creator xmlns:dc="">quota_atypique</dc:creator><pubDate>Fri, 07 Jun 2013 10:44:00 +0200</pubDate><guid>,2013-06-07:recent-developments-made-short.html</guid></item><item><title>What’s new on memopol dev n°1</title><link></link><description>&lt;p&gt;Hmm, what did we do last week ?&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We are still working on the design. We gathered a bit more feedback from
the ones that worked on it at the last quadratelier. Webdesigners need
more poking around, but we have no worries, quota_atypique pokes around
a lot.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We are about to have a new logo, thanks to cocodaemon \o/ &lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;&lt;img alt="logo" src="" /&gt; &lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;This may not be the final version, we are waiting for feedback,
validations, and all that stuff before saying to the world that we have
a beauuuutiful logo.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We thought about the users who love beautiful things, we thought also
about the administrators and the developers :  we updated the README
with new informations, so you won't get lost in all this data. The goal
is to make it useful to you! &lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;You can see it here
&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;And we also updated the contributors list, here
&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We also wrote some documentation to help you understand the trend charts
you can see on Memopol.&lt;br /&gt;
It's still on dev, we are waiting for feedback before publishing it.
We'll keep you in touch.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We also fixed some little useful points :&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;we finish retrieving missing deputies' opinions data from the first
version of Memopol, split them between European Parliament and
French Nationnal Assemblee and fix the displaying!&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;SEO stuff: when the server is on debug mode, the robots.txt displays
a disallow : / for each robot.&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;we pushed i18n support and are translating it to french, &lt;a href=""&gt;don't
hesitate to come and help
us&lt;/a&gt; (ask
to join the team, we'll approve you ASAP)!&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;p&gt;So, next steps :&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Design, design, design&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;li&gt;Write moar documentation&lt;/li&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We did a lot these days for Memopol !&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;Spreading Memopol anywhere&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;First, we did some work in order to let you use Memopol for any other
cause! We believe this tool is awesome, so we want to spread it! Image
if you could go on the political memory of every citizen groups that
represents your interests and have an accurate idea on how well your
representatives are effectivly representing you?&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;It is now possible to personalize Memopol for your own project →
&lt;a href=""&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We also worked on make it easier to update Memopol data →
&lt;a href="%20"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Speaking about updating Memopol we are proud to announce you that now,
Memopol is up to date concerning the French deputies data \o/ &lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Thanks to &lt;a href=""&gt;Tarnefys&lt;/a&gt; for that!&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;h2&gt;QCC, Day 1&lt;/h2&gt;
&lt;p&gt;As you probably already know, Memopol team is here at the
&lt;a href=""&gt;QCC&lt;/a&gt; to
improve Memopol.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We are working on new features for the tool, like trophees that we could
put on the profiles of the MEPs : if they have voted a lot for Net
Neutrality, for example.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We also have --which is great-- a little design team that made already
some work for Memopol. Maybe we'll have a brand new design to present
you after the weekend! &lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;Thanks to quota_atypique, ybon, cocodaemon for their work \o/&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;We'll come back to you tomorrow and tell you what was done today!&lt;/p&gt;</description><dc:creator xmlns:dc="">bram</dc:creator><pubDate>Sat, 20 Oct 2012 17:42:00 +0200</pubDate><guid>,2012-10-20:whats-new-on-memopol-5.html</guid></item></channel></rss>
