USA Fedral Spending as pie chart

Federal spending 09

When I saw this pie chart here it reminded me of the Open Source Governance that Ray Archer and I imagined when we started thinking about NewAthens (broken link). All we need to do is add sliders to each segment that would allow people to adjust the size of a segment, and a slider to adjust the total size of the pie. A wiki to collect data, debate and thoughts would be important too. Double clicking on a segment would allow citizens to drill down into more detailed charts of spending… well a man can dream.

    Don’t just dream it; this can be implemented in Metascore:
    as part of the Metagovernment project


  2. Mabe I am missing something, but MetaScore is just an empty sourceforge project space … looks like I’ll have to keep dreaming for a while.

    It has to start somewhere. They’re still in the pre-planning stage, but that’s still more than just a dream! 🙂 Real development on the software starts in mid-2008.
