Recovery.Gov Takes a Shot at Transparency


Bringing the pledge of transparency to Internet life, the White House has officially launched Recovery.gov — a website that lets you track the stimulus money.

The President says, "instead of politicians doling out money behind closed doors, the important decisions about where taxpayer dollars are invested will be yours to scrutinize." To help you scrutinize, the site has features like an interactive map showing you how many jobs will be created in each state, graphs breaking down stimulus funds, a timeline for crucial upcoming milestones, and a place for you to share what's working, and not working for you.

Who doesn't like graphs and maps, not to mention a little accountability?
