Today is OpenData day. Here is my contribution:

I am scrapping the members of the parliament from a static HTML file to a dynamic XML.

Wanna try?
Load http://talkweb.eu/gov20/api/?group=3 and change parameter as:

1 – Independents
2 – GERB
3 – KB
4 – DPS
5 – Ataka
6 – Blue Coalition

How it works?
I wrote some simple scripts to extract the data and to put it into MySQL database and then I am loading it from there in XML format.

Long Term
I am now really exited to implement the CAP into some of Bulgarian governmental agencies.

I care about privacy, ethical design, and freedom in many aspects. I spend 20+ years working as a web developer and architect, analyst, manager, and product owner/manager in different environments, several countries, and multiple software industries like Healthcare and Hospitality. I wore many hats, and I use the knowledge gathered to optimize the flow of value across complex systems.
