HealthCare.gov's Big Failure

The HealthCare.gov fiasco is a timely case study in how "big" is a liability in today's age of radical connectivity. Big institutions - a giant federal bureaucracy, huge technology contractors, and a bloated government procurement process - spent over $500,000,000 creating a glorified webform -- and failed. But these big organizations never stood a chance, and smaller, more agile, and nimbler firms and processes could have mitigated these risks which now threaten the President's legacy.

Message in a Digital Bottle

I didn’t expect to find a QR Code camping in the mountains of Vermont. In fact, stranded without cell service for several days, I had almost forgotten my phone was anything more than a weird shaped flashlight.

Contextual Complexity Vexes a Texan; or Non-contextual Views Filters, Contextually

Ok fine, I'm not a Texan.

But if you, like me, have ever needed a Drupal View's contextual filters to be combined with an "or" operator, you have probably been vexed.
