This is why all your friends that work in IT have been having random fits of the giggles the last couple of weeks…

By now everyone, even the gremlins on Mars, has heard that the rollout of the (Un)ACA website, healthcare.gov, has been an abysmal failure. So much so, IT types like myself can’t help but laugh. And laugh. And laugh. It is a classic example of non-Tech-types dreaming up a system concept, skipping most of the major life cycle development checks, then not testing what the code monkeys came up with from the cocktail napkins design specs.

Except in this case, instead of having to pull the Scarecrow dance routine for cranky stakeholders for their lack of deliverables, these folks get to testify in a Congressional hearing. For a bunch of hyper-partisan political cranks.

Pass the popcorn.

“Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking.”

Oh, and this.

Code Testing

UPDATE: Kathleen Sebelius has a track record of big stinkers. Who better to take over the reins of Queen Project Manager?
