To give a sense of the breadth, the list below shows you which APIs were used by which mashups:

Congress Facebook is a new mashup that combines 11 different web APIs that wants “to make Congress more accountable and transparent”. The app tracks a lot of data for each member: voting records, FEC reports, Campaign Finance summary, their opinions on the issues, and even their state’s federal spending reports. The design of the site is basic, but the it’s data rich. And among other things, it’s an entry in a contest we reported on last month Sunlight Labs’ Apps for America contest.
