Submission + - Army of Davids beats Pentagon procurement

chris-chittleborough writes: "The Wall Street Journal reports that 'a Marine officer in Iraq, a small network-design company in California, a nonprofit troop-support group, a blogger and other undeterrable folk designed a handheld insurgent-identification device, built it, shipped it and deployed it in [Iraq] in 30 days.' Compare this to the Automated Biometric Identification System, a multi-megabuck Pentagon project now 2 years old. It's a striking example of 'How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government, and Other Goliaths'."

1 1 was a race-horse, 2 2 was 1 2. When 1 1 1 1 race, 2 2 1 1 2.
