This was a simple project, easily accomplished by competent people. There is no need for another government agency, an agency which will hire the same connected companies that fonged this project up.

One of those ideas is reversing the innovation-fellows program to have government technology specialists rotate through private-sector companies.

Who in the private sector would hire these doofuses, when they can go out and contract competent people.

The Services have already tried this with a couple tech areas. What happens when these ‘tech expert’ management organizations come into being is they create excessively bureaucratic management roadblocks and an added layer of frustration, and often a dubious technical expertise base.

Their ‘tech management experts’ often are DoD civilians some other federal organization is trying to get rid of but can’t fire.

Overall, this move by Obama is a tired and already-tried idea that doesn’t work in practice, in my opinion.

Big Tech projects????

BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

like destroying the effectiveness of encryption programing used by individual Americans to spy for political purposes under the guise of anti-terrorism. ( Howdaya Know?....look at how Obama uses the IRS to shut down conservative non profits).

We need to get rid of Obama and institute strict judicial oversight on all government domestic surveillance programs.Or else everyone looses their political freedom and every fuuture election will be rigged.

Obama is working on ways to control the internet. This is a smoke screen.

See, it’s always the techs’ fault, never management’s fault.

He knows how to manage large enterprises. He scooped ice cream at Baskin Robbins once upon a time.

Hey zero, how about taking multiple bids on a contract, instead of using your wife’s college buddies, with a no bid contract?

Under current immigration law, the federal government already has the authority to hire an unlimited number of foreign born STEM workers.

State and local government have the same authority, as do non-profit research labs and universities.

Leave it to Obama, and his sychopants in the press to believe that hiring a few tech geeks will make socialism work.

One wonders who will head this new ‘tech unit’. My bet is that the foist lady’s little friend at oblundercares CGI software Corp. is going to be very high on the list of IT experts considered. It only makes sense ya know,

The Obama administration, stung by the failures of the HealthCare.gov rollout, is considering loosening hiring rules for technology specialists and creating a new federal unit dedicated to big tech projects, officials said

First, how much looser can you get than a no-bid contract to a company whose VP was one of Michelle's classmates? Second, how does a new federal unit make things better? Won't it just make them more bureaucratic?
