As Matt Asay points out in his post:
"HealthCare.gov failed not so much because of its code, but rather because of how it was assembled and rolled out: in secret."
But it is important to note that while the implication here is that "operating in secret" is a "bad thing", it is also how most every private enterprise has the luxury of operating. I assure you, if every enterprise launch went through the same level of public scrutiny that healthcare.gov has seen lately we would see a lot less media hand-wringing going on about "technology failures" than we see today.
Title: I wanted a point application, I didn't mean one that assigns blame.
Snarky: At least it doesn't make you testify in front of the Senate.
