This backdrop is what makes former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s new “Big Data” project so intriguing. The tech billionaire and Los Angeles Clippers owner has created an interactive website — USAFacts.org — that provides statistics on local, state and federal governments, what they spend their money on and how efficient they are at helping the public.
