Congrats to Adrian Holovaty, the creator of the much lauded, for being selected by Crain's as one of 2005's "40 under 40" in Chicago business. Not only has he made a name for himself by creating an immensely useful and innovative website, but he also scored a job out of the project-- in August he accepted a position with the Washington Post as "Editor of Editorial Innovation" (How cool is his business card?) and recently announced the release of his first major project, a database of every vote in the US Congress since 1991.
