From the Canadian Press (via Toronto Star):
Long before there was Facebook or Twitter, the closest thing MPs had to a “status update” was Hansard — the official transcripts of the debates in the House of Commons.
But a high-tech facelift for the 132-year-old publication hopes to merge the reporting requirements of old with modern-day technology, transforming what was once just a massive sheaf of paper into a living electronic document.
Over the last year, a House of Commons team has been recoding the electronic version of Hansard to link together its various elements — text, audio and video — on the same page.
Online video of the Commons, which returns Monday from a week-long Thanksgiving break, has been available to the public since 2004, but it was never indexed; to see a particular MP, a user had to search through the entire day’s material.
Now, video clips pop up next to a transcript of the speech, alongside links to share content on Facebook and Twitter or subscribe to an automatic feed.
