Smart Citizen reads like an off-the-shelf tool to aid the NSA. No thanks.
I think the only point of the story is that Dear Leader says it is OK so it must be so.
You can keep your errors.
Same goes for Vermont's site. Total crap. The Oracle Identity Manager appeared to be rolled out with default settings - including default text where Vermont-specific naming conventions should have been inserted but weren't. I don't think you can blame Oracle for this. In Vermont, as at the Fed level, this is massive incompetence by CGI and the state IT bureaucracy. The legislators don't seem too concerned. After all, Vermont was FIRST. That makes it RIGHT.
Adjusted for inflation the NASDAQ isn't worth any more than it was 13 years ago.

EFF has been sending out stickers to cover cameras on devices. Let's hope they start sending out little cotton balls to plug mics.

"so our site is only possible because of the hard work that the Healthcare.gov team has done"
Sorry, no. this information was already out there. How do you think people found insurance online before? Lipstick on a pig is right.
Our Gov is finally "out of patience" with Vermont's site (built by the same CGI that did such a bang up job on the Fed system: http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/article/20131031/NEWS03/310310034/Governor-Peter-Shumlin-Web-woes-prompt-changes-to-Vermont-health-reform
Yes, as opposed to Vermont where we set the bar so high nobody can use the state's site.
Great book! I'm halfway through it and it has got me riled up enough to
and throw in the fact it was a night landing so you're depth perception is whacked as well. Good job.
Source? As it simply isn't true. What IS unfortunate is the loss of the old card catalogs. It used to be the case that multiple people could access the card catalog simultaneously but with the advent of PCs most have been replaced with a library-software equipped PC which limits use to the numbers of PCs on-hand. For a small library that is typically one.
Vermont's site is a disaster. Based on Oracle you'll encounter pages that were set up using what looks like boilerplate language then never corrected. For example, I was prompted to create this one time password – poorly explained – and presented with this screen that tells the user to enter a mobile phone number then shows a field for an email address – there is no field for a phone number. Then, there is a line of text - "I agree to [ENTER COMPANY OR SERVICE NAME HERE] – that is obviously boilerplate that was never replaced or corrected." The pols and the press keep announcing it is a "processing bottleneck" - now blamed on "old computers"... Can you say "we're gonna waste even more money on this thing?"
