Exciting stuff on with the launch of their new API.

This is all free to non-profit-making sites and thus lets Flock Together (as a decidedly non-profit-making site) access all kinds of information when users input a postcode, such as the constituency the postcode refers to and the MP that goes with that constituency.

Now to work out exactly what to do with the opportunities this represents! Obvious ideas include:

  • Mapping users into their constituencies
  • Automatically assigning meetings and by-elections to the constituencies they are held in

But I’ve got some even cooler ideas than that – particularly when one starts mashing up constituency information, Google Maps, Google News and Prater Raines website feeds!

Lots to think about…
