My hero Clay Shirky strikes again with this must read blogpost on the debacle that is Healthcare.gov. For many online media people, designers and the clutter 2 degrees away from them, it was almost impossible to avoid the news and drama surrounding the non-functional and more than $ 600 million costing website. It has been all over the media and a month ago, Shirky already wrote a quality lengthy article on the subject at The Guardian.
A must read if you're working with, on, or are in any way connected to a project. Because situations where management is unwilling to listen to their employees, where there's a culture of people not willing to take the blame or tell upper management the truth on implications of their own decisions happen far too often.
