Real time measure of GDP

Technology allows us to monitor things in real time, stock prices, personal health, airline flights for example. National accounting measurement of GDP is a stock measure for each quarter or year. National accounts were developed in the 1930s and dont seem to have been updated much. GDP reports are given wide publicity and may lead to policy changes. Would it be useful to have a real time measure of GDP? If so, why has it not been developed?

    This design is steller! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well,
    almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job. I really loved what
    you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!
