Hi all,

Today we are thrilled to officially launch Spending Stories:

Spending Stories is a new way to put spending figures in their proper
perspective. Developed by the Open Knowledge Foundation and Journalism++
with funding from the Knight Foundation, Spending Stories is an app that
helps citizens and journalists understand and compare amounts in stories
from the news.

Spending Stories draws out comparisons between amounts of money, giving
users a context in which to understand how money is being spent across
society while referencing the original news stories. Users can enter a
figure into Spending Stories and get a scale visualisation showing how it
compares with spending stories from the app’s database.

If you like what you see, share it via Twitter:
"Announcing #SpendingStories, our new site with @jplusplus_ which puts
spending into perspective http://ow.ly/r2AbQ"

You can finally learn more in our
the Spending Stories FAQ <http://spendingstories.org/#/faq>.

If you have questions, please get in touch here on the list!
