Gotta Luv It

I made a pretty good living designing and implementing large scale information systems, and then teaching college students how to do the same. The obamacare debacle would make a fascinating case study in how not to do things. Rather than bore you with the technical details, I'll just hit a few of the highlights (or lowlights, depending on your perspective).
We, the taxpayers, seem to have forked up more than $500 million of the federal purse to build the digital equivalent of a rock.

We paid over $500 million for the Obamacare sites and all we got was this lousy 404.

When things still go wrong, they simply throw ‘more money at the same people who caused the problem to fix the problem.’

For a more comprehensive (and less tongue-in-cheek)discussion of the problems with the obamacare website go here.
The website launched to process customers through the new ObamaCare marketplace may experience significant technical glitches for months...
Our tax dollars at work.
