Outlier Media, MuckRock Foundation combine to bring accountability reporting and tools to more communities
MuckRock and Outlier Media are combining to equip newsrooms and communities with new ways to create actionable transparency. Together, we’re expanding our work not only helping others release and share information, but also better ways for the public to understand and use it.
The last few weeks we’ve been heads down on DocumentCloud work, so no new user-facing features this past week. Want to work on transparency tools of your own? Join us Tuesday nights in Cambridge as we work on our Code for Boston project, GovLens.
Have an idea for a public records request that can unlock important stories at the state, local, or federal level? Share it with the world and get a shot at more than $1,000 in prizes.
Last week, we pushed a new feature that lets you see the number of Assignment submissions per day. We also added improved logging on our end to help identify and correct bugs more quickly.
