Knight Lab Announces City Hall Monitor

Northwestern University’s Knight Lab has a writeup on a new tool called City Hall Monitor. “City Hall Monitor allows reporters to filter the mundane documents, limit their search by date, and create subscriptions to alert them when new documents matching their search term are published. It’s a first step in a work-in-progress technology that we hope proves useful.” This is just for Chicago at the moment, but wow, I can imagine this being terrifically useful in any city.
