    NYT: Faced with the politically devastating collapse of HealthCare.gov last year, President Obama’s White House staff lured Mikey Dickerson away from Google to save the day.

    Mr. Dickerson will lead a new government team that is intended to identify and fix the government’s other failing computer systems and websites, officials said Monday.

    It is also a calculated bet that Mr. Dickerson can do from inside the government what he did as an outsider: break through the bureaucratic rules about technology procurement and standardized practices to inject a bit of innovative thinking across agencies.

    Now they'll have inside information as to how Google stores information on people, and be able to implement less transparent ways of gaining access to that information. icon_eek.gif

    I don't get it. Why would someone who designed goggles be a good choice for this job?
