All good things must end.

The RegulationRoom project has come to an end.  Thanks to our primary funders, the National Science Foundation and Cornell Law School, and to the officials at our partner agencies who took the chance on making this work in live rulemakings. Special thanks to Neil Eisner, a visionary in the trenches; Eddie Tejada, whose tech wizardry and enthusiasm got us off the ground; and Austin Eustice, whose creative eye gave SmartParticipation a personality.
