Dashboards are all the rage on federal websites these days. At the Federal Communications Commission, they're letting website visitors create and customize their own. The MyFCC tool is still in the beta testing stage, but the idea is to let users choose from a menu of widgets that tap into the FCC's most commonly requested data sources to build a custom dashboard. There are about two dozen widgets available as of now. And, the FCC is letting users log with credentials from third parties like Google or Facebook so they have one fewer password to remember.
