"... one lesson of the fall and rise of HealthCare.gov has to be that the practice of awarding high-tech, high-stakes contracts to companies whose primary skill seems to be getting those contracts rather than delivering on them has to change."

Fascinating read, especially for geeks who deal with bureaucrats.

It will only change if it is privatized. Government involvement means it will inevitably be politicized.

Basis Technology requires a native French and fluent English speaker with familiarity of software terms (API) and linguistic terms (POS). If you know anyone who might be interested in this short term (1 - 4 week) assignment please have them send a resume to jobs-linguists@basistech.com.

What is in a name?

Quite a lot, actually.

I don't usually share viral links, but this is too good ... or bad ... like Dilbert.

+Randy Smith I'm glad you mentioned that, because I was thinking something similar. The president at my last company was entirely disdainful of the idea that there could be any value to VC.

We are facing the worst national crisis in my lifetime, perhaps since the Civil War. If you have not done so already, I urge you to write to your Representative, your Senators, and John Boehner, and urge them to pass a clean CR and pay our debts without any partisan conditions.

Who puts all the time into designing the pictures on the Google search page? Today's pendulum clock looks like it must have taken days.

"One reason programmers dislike meetings so much is that they're on a different type of schedule from other people. Meetings cost them more."
July 2009. One reason programmers dislike meetings so much is that they're on a different type of schedule from other people. Meetings cost them more. There are two types of schedule, which I'll call the manager's schedule and the maker's schedule. The manager's schedule is for bosses.

My issue these days is that I'm 75% customer interaction, 25% engineer (a.k.a. programmer). Periods of extended productivity are rare.

Fortunately, I almost always feel like our meetings are worth the time.
