"Ruthless incrementalism" is a strategy most IT people can relate to and support. 1700 rules? I'd hate to try to make sense of that the old fashioned way with paper.

You know why did HHS not call the web portion with automated purchasing a "beta" as that's what it is and also focus a little more on the contingency support...show addicted to data everyone is. Do you see Apple or Microsoft putting out a new operating system without a beta, duh? So you have one of the larges integrated data projects in US history and it can't be called a "beta" while the bugs are worked out? People know what a beta is and you get more sympathy that way too with the bugs..duh?

Hats off to all the technology folks working on all the projects too.

re: Obamacare Health Exchanges: How Oregon Got It Done
Regarding politics... From Obama's interview yesterday with NPR:

"In the first week, first month, first three months, I would suspect that there will be glitches. This is 50 states, a lot of people signing up for something. And there are going to be problems. And I guarantee you, there will be problems because we've got precedent. When Massachusetts, just one state, set this up, it took quite a long time. It took several months before everything was smoothed out. Of course, the same was true with Medicare and Social Security and every other social program that we've set up, the Children's Health Insurance Program."
