Speed vs security
Getting Healthcare.gov to function as it was designed from the start may seem like progress, but hardly worth cheering about.  I'm with Rob and others who argue that outward performance improvements is not to be confused with security assurance.

User-centric approach
Finally, an approach that puts the user experience first! While it would be ideal to never have a "queue," the email system isn't a bad idea. Load time from eight seconds to less than one second is also pretty impressive.
