Why the Government Never Gets Tech Right


October 24, 2013
The New York Times


MILLIONS of Americans negotiating America’s health care system

know all too well what the waiting room of a doctor’s office looks like.

Now, thanks to HealthCare.gov,

they know what a “virtual waiting room” looks like, too.

Nearly 20 million Americans, in fact, have visited the Web site

since it opened three weeks ago, but only about 500,000 managed

to complete applications for insurance coverage.

And an even smaller subset of those applicants

actually obtained coverage.

COULD this ghostly apparition

finally prove what many have known for centuries -

Hampton Court really is haunted?

The spooky image was caught on CCTV,

the first time a supernatural sighting

has been recorded at the palace.

Mind you, if it a ghost, it's a safety-conscious one.

Guards scouring the footage were stunned

when the figure appeared on screen closing a fire door.

They had already seen the door mysteriously fly open

on its own in an exhibition area of the palace,

once home to King Henry VIII and some of his six wives.


His third wife Jane Seymour, who died in childbirth,

also supposedly haunts the grounds

- along with many other spooks.

But there's always somebody ready to spoil

a good ghost story.

Professor Richard Wiseman, a psychologist

at the University of Hertfordshire,

said the image of the CCTV film was probably

a "member of the public helpfully closing the door".

was sworn in as President -

and drew open a neat white curtain to reveal

the first model of a building

which will one day become the tallest

and possibly the most celebrated in the world.

The squabbles are over and the form is agreed.

It also has a name: Freedom Tower.
