NPR Tries Crowd-Sourcing

The NPR has tried turning the cameras around at a senate hearing in DC to identify lobbyists in the group. It turns out the senate hearing was on health care reform.

It's an interesting use of crowdsourcing, and an insightful way of exposing how politics work, but it's also a bit of a wake-up call for privacy advocates - I was able to find one of the identified persons' details from a google search and linkedin.
