Crivella West Hosts New Freedom of Information Web Site for Recently Released Palin E-mailsCARNEGIE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Crivella West Incorporated, a knowledge discovery company, announced today the launch of a new website hosting a collection of emails recently released under several public record requests made in September 2007 to the Governor of Alaska's office that related to Todd Palin and seven members of then Governor Palin's staff, including Governor Palin.
The records provided by the governor's office consist of 2,544 pages and were subsequently provided to Bill Dedman, an msnbc.com investigative reporter. In collaboration with msnbc.com, Crivella West, digitized, analyzed and categorized these documents into Special Collections for easy review. Bill Dedman's findings were published on February 5, 2010 and can be found at: http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/politics/Palin_e-mail_reveals_a_powerful__first_dude_-83637157.html. Copies of all the documents in a searchable database can be accessed via www.crivellawest.com. Crivella West created the site and is hosting it as a public service.
Art Crivella, CEO and Co-Founder, said: "Our vision is to change the way people think, work and make decisions. Public records are a vital part of our democracy. The challenge is to make the records widely accessible in an easy to use unbiased format. Our sophisticated analytical and linguistic tools do just that. Based on the number of visits that have already occurred and favorable comments by users, it is obvious that this new website is a big hit. Going forward we hope to add collections so that the general public can get an inside look into the events and interactions of public figures."
