Barn Doors and Horses

Four months after the disastrous roll-out of the site, Ms Shecantbeserious appears ready to cut ties with the rocket surgeons who developed and implemented it:

"The Obama administration has decided to jettison CGI Federal, the main IT contractor that was responsible for building the defect-ridden online health insurance marketplace and has been immersed in the work of repairing it"

That's the good news (for a certain value of "good"); the bad news is that the Feds managed to blow through almost $680 million in taxpayer funds in the first place.

It seems that, having apparently had a change of heart about using a Canadian company to build and run an American portal, Ms Shecantbeserious has chosen Accenture, "one of the world’s largest consulting firms, [with] extensive experience with computer systems on the state level, [including] California’s new health insurance exchange."

For real?

That Golden State Health Insurance Exchange?
