People, rather than Members

Robert Brook

Whenever the blog goes quiet, it’s a sign that we’re coding a lot.

The latest public release of the Hansard Prototype now refers to ‘people’ rather than Members: http://hansard.millbanksystems.com/people – for example: Mr. Tony Benn.

This represents a substantial improvement in how we recognise and display those recorded as speaking in Hansard. Your comments are most welcome.

If you’re on Twitter, please feel free to comment there if you prefer – you can find me at @robertbrook. Apparently Tony Benn is on Twitter as well – but he’s not as chatty.
