A thought about the government's Obamacare website

I've been busy lately so am not keeping up with the news, but in passing here and there I have been hearing headlines about the Obamacare site crashing, not working.

519913050_4d009775e2_oThis morning I overheard a comment on a Sunday talk show to the effect of, "why in the world wasn't this site built right."

It's as if some people expect the government to have as much experience as Amazon or Google in building complex, consumer-facing e-commerce sites that scale!

They should slap "BETA" all over all versions of the site for the next 2-5 years and otherwise try to tamp down expectations.
