Nicko from the Sunlight Foundation sez,
Today, the non-partisan Sunlight Foundation is experimenting with a new way to create lobbying transparency. We're crowdsourcing analysis of lobbyists at markups and hearings. Our hope is that you can help us identify D.C.'s power brokers and assorted lobbyists who have an interest in influencing the Senate's view on the proposed AT&T/T-Mobile merger.
Can you help? We turned the camera around at a recent hearing on the merger. Please take a look at this post and let us know if you can ID anyone in the photos.

It’s easy to be instantly dismissive about most Bluetooth speakers, especially small travel-sized units. Over the past few years, makers of every shape, size, and variety have started pounding out Bluetooth speakers, many barely able to sound much better than your smartphone speaker, let alone provide the bass and volume heft of legitimate portable speakers […]
Did you know that you are free to change your auto insurance at any time? Maybe you do know that, but don’t want to deal with the inconvenience of changing providers. Or maybe you simply already think you have a great deal. The fact is that your car insurance is one of those expenses that […]
