One of the people that I think is making the best use of the Web and data in the digital form is Adrian Holovaty. He’s smart and clever, having created chicagocrime.org, a bunch of stuff for the Washington Post like Faces of the Fallen (service members killed in Iraq and Afghanistan), U.S. Congress Votes Database, and the latest, Campaign Tracker (tracking appearances of the 2008 presidential candidates.
I would describe Holovaty as a journalist/computer programmer/archivist/tinkerer. Pretty cool.
I can’t wait to see what Aadrian Holovaty comes up with next.
