Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. When it comes to politics…it is easy to get overwhelmed with information and often misinformation. A Web site called Countable.us aims to cut through much of the clutter …giving users the basic facts about legislation…how their representatives are voting…and provides ways to engage with those representatives and others. COO Paul Stich says it is a bi-partisan platform…
“It gives you a way to engage…do you support this..or disagree with it and then leave comments. And we moderate the comments section very well..so we keep it respectful. But we also keep it balanced, so we make sure the comments aren’t all focused, directed from the liberals or all from the conservative side.”
Kind of an old concept…made new again.
