Government admits to design flaws in healthcare.gov

The joy of getting your passport without a tout!

I have never had a pleasant experience at a government office--be it getting a property registered or having to procure a birth or death certificate.There are several things I have disliked at these offices--the way the citizens are treated, the presence of touts, the dingy filthy offices, and the fact that these offices only left me more disillusioned about the state of affairs in my motherland.

Get ready for the applications boom

Will the NBN provide a boom for local application developers? If so, have we got enough local expertise to develop these applications? A visit to many government department websites will show how poor the user experience can be. With the new network will we just get more frustrated quicker?

Evil tech administrators

Terry Childs sits in a San Francisco jail, accused of locking down the city government network and refusing to give up the passwords. Though it's not completely fair, past negative experience of overly controlling technical administrators colors my perception of him.

Lame hands-free law goes into effect in WA State on 1 July 2008

The government is implementing news laws all the time in order to find ways to generate tax revenue, with little factual evidence backing up or validating the laws. I live in Washington State and tomorrow our second hands-free law of the year begins. Back on 1 January of this year a complete ban on text messaging while driving was started. This one actually is fine with me since text messaging while driving is just plain dumb and since it seems that every teen text messages, with little driving experience, hopefully this prevents them from causing accidents. The law going into effect tomorrow, 1 July 2008, prohibits people from holding their cell phone to their ear while making and receiving calls. You can use a wireless Bluetooth, wired headset and just turn on and use your speakerphone capability.

A geek's trip to Capitol Hill on Network Management

I appeared before congressional and government staffers on Capitol Hill for a panel on Network Management sponsored by iGrowthGlobal.  This was my first time in Washington DC and while it was a little cold for my Californian bones, it was a beautiful city and seeing the capitol of the nation was certainly a worthwhile experience.
