Recovery Online – The new stimulus website

Recovery.gov is open for business. I browsed the site a bit. There isn’t a great deal to look at yet. The site is a lot like the stimulus itself; a lot of promises without much progress, not yet anyway.

There is an uninspired timeline of stimulus milestones letting you know when certain groups receive funding and are asked to report on its use. A summary of the bill can be found with a link to the entire leviathan. Detailed charts show how much of the stimulus will be invested in each sector and expected job creation/salvation in each state. Maine by the way is expected to gain or keep 15,000 jobs.

The government’s Recovery site is in its infancy. It was created to help begin to boost confidence. I can see it doing that. Personally it doesn’t wow me, but I’m eager to see how it will pan out over the coming months.
