  1. Exploring City of London Councillors data

    I scraped data about the City of London’s councillors, and their interests and gifts, and made a site to browse and search it using Datasette.

    @blech It’s odd, some non-square images were definitely showing OK, but it seems some non-square images are the wrong kind of non-square.

    Anyone had this in iTunes? in Album view, some albums display no artwork even though all tracks on the album have artwork. They used to show up OK… odd.

    I wrote about scraping the City of London’s councillors data to make a site that lets you search their interests and gifts, among other things:

    Here’s the site, if you missed it yesterday: city-of-london-councillors.now.sh

    @dracos @tomskitomski Yes, needs! This kind of thing feels like an increasingly rare gap on the web, and I hate those gaps. Not sure I hate this one enough to do anything about it though :)
