Dumb Quote of the day – Todd Park – US Chief Technology Officer

Now I’m not trying to start any new drama but this quote is pretty unbelievable.

Any IT leader who said these words after a disaster would be fired immediately which leaves me wondering why this dude still has a job.

After the technical nightmare that happened with the US healthcare website Healthcare.gov (too many users trying to log in crashing the system), U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park said the government expected HealthCare.gov to draw 50,000 to 60,000 simultaneous users, but instead it has drawn as many as 250,000 at a time since it launched Oct. 1.

But here’s the kicker and this is apparently a quote.

“These bugs were functions of volume,” Park said. “Take away the volume and it works.”

Are you kidding me!!?

Tell me what would happen if you told your boss this after a failed rollout. Would you even have a job?

Is it just me or is that one of the more insane IT quotes you have heard?
