TheyWorkForYou API

Today, we launched an API (Application Programming Interface) to the data TheyWorkForYou contains. This lets other sites query our site for various bits of information, such as the constituency or MP for a particular postcode, the debates for a particular date, the comments left on a certain MP's speeches, and so on. It's not complete and will hopefully have improvements in future – see the documentation and have a play with it. Do dive in, and let us know of any interesting or fun applications you come up with! The immediate new feature on TheyWorkForYou itself is the list of neighbouring constituencies on an MP's page.

Here's my BarCamp Presentation launching the API, and a couple of applications using it.
