More than pretty pictures and fancy buzzwords

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that a new watchdog site is more substantial than 'protecting the vulnerable'.

From TechRepublican's blog:

At today’s Conservative Blogger’s Briefing, hosted by Robert Bluey at the Heritage Foundation, Onvia CEO Mike Pickett and CTO Eric Gillespie spoke about their project, Recovery.org – a new website designed to track where YOUR taxpayer money is going.

Recovery.org is a technological solution to government transparency that is doing exactly what the White House intended to do already, but hasn’t yet done with Recovery.gov.
Recovery.org has a nice breakdown of stimulus spending by state, county, and city.  And how they managed to get that domain, I don't know - I'm guessing it cost a pretty penny.
