Various ideas of stuff we could do or inspirations of what we've seen elsewhere.

Idea: visualize which places Europe talks about

Do MEPs talk about Africa? Do Scandanavians talk about each other? Do the Commission and the Parliament have different geographical priorities?Let's visualize it. Extract place names from documents and speeches, and create visualizations of the attention given to countries and regions.

Idea: collect MEPs' declarations of financial interest

MEPs' declarations of financial interest are public, but pretty inaccessible. Let's bring them into the open web. Download current+past declarations of interests for MEPs. Put them online in an easy-to-access place (MEPWatch?), so citizens can read them.
