How it's done

Hundreds of millions of dollars and 3+ years later, and still doesn't work. Perhaps one is thinking that's an unfair characterization, and that the task was well-nigh impossible to accomplish in that time-frame and budget.

One would be wrong:

"Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser developed a site in matter of days – and it does things the expensive and faltering can’t do."

Ah, but they must be long-time coding veterans with decades of experience on which to rely, and mega-donors willing to fund them.

Um, not so much:

"... the three 20-year-olds say they worked on the project as a service rather than to make money."

Kids these days.
