Grackle68K 0.0.9 is a Twitter client for 68K Macs running System 6 through Mac OS 9. The developer says “Also, if you use resedit to put your username and password in the obvious STR resource, you won’t have to enter it when you start the program. It would be nice if you didn’t have to use ResEdit, but why not open ResEdit and reminisce anyway?”

This is a great way for citizens to navigate a system as complex as the New York Senate. It makes me believe that the creators thought a great deal about user experience and how people search – and for a government site that is a huge accomplishment. What is really exceptional is that they didn’t stop with search but also allow commenting on legislation and is available in formats like XML and JSON.
