Great point made in this post. There are a number of IT projects that are not finished or mishandled. The government is not immune to such issues. That is not an excuse but to Ric's point its not surprising. Hopefully the site is on its way to perform like it should.

Thanks for sharing that Civic Agency link
Thanks for sharing the link to the Civic Agency blog, which I hadn't seen.

There's also an interesting follow up here on the role of open source early on in the project and how sharing of code between the state and federal exchanges seems to have fallen by the wayside:

The Business of Going Digital
The Business of Going Digital
Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
