Stimulus spending

Here's my idea for how to spend some of the stimulus money. Let's get every contractor, electrician, plumber, roofer, heating guy, siding installer, and everyone else in the construction trades, free PDAs, with collaborative scheduling and reminders. They'd have to be ruggedized, waterproof ones with GPS so we could tell where they got left behind and reunite them with their owners.

Even so, a few months later, most of them would likely have been crushed or buried in concrete... but during those few months, I bet we'd get about three years worth of construction done, resulting in a big boost to the economy.
