Beltway buzz

LittleSis for Washington insiders, in this week’s National Journal:

The biggest value LittleSis offers is not so much the details it provides but the ties it highlights. “In a city like Washington that functions off of connections … having an online Rolodexing system to figure out these connections is a valuable tool,” said Scott Goodstein, who served as the external online director for Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.

It’s interesting to see the site presented to an inside-the-beltway audience. I’m glad the article informed them that:

  1. LittleSis is watching.
  2. This will prove useful to insiders-looking-in.

The magazine is subscription-only, but the article is available here from Sunlight Foundation.
