The Knight Foundation’s blog has a great rundown of the early findings of the Stimulus Progress Bar, ProPublica’s new tracker of stimulus funding and its effects. (ProPublica is funded in part by the Knight Foundation.)

Update: This post initially referred to the Stimulus Progress Bar as “ProPublica’s Knight-funded tracker of stimulus funding”; it’s been updated to clarify that the Knight Foundation, rather than specifically funding the Stimulus Progress Bar, provides general funding support to ProPublica.
