USA Spending Dashboard

About: welcome to

I wonder how much of this is real & how much is just allocation & what is in the budget.  I would like to see real numbers in a hierarchy of pie charts top to bottom. Two other websites are an article in the Politico on the bailouts Bailouts could cost U.S. $23 trillion .  There is an API for some of the government data which I suppose could be rearranged.  It would require digging out what the data means first. (LOL).  I might like to look into the Google App Engine to see if something quick & dirty could be cobbled together more along the HyPie line.

There are several groups working on the technology of getting governmental information.  I belong to two of them sunlight labs and get the info.  Get the info is involved directly with getting and digesting massive amounts of governmental  data.  If you want to get involved in making this happen, you might want to ask your technical questions over there.  Google Apps might work, or maybe even just Google Documents.  Digesting data is kind of interesting, have a go at it.

Seth says
maybe progress here ? … Steve Ballmer Serves Up a Fascinating Data Trove
