Ok Senator Cruz took the trophy away from John McCain being the “poster child” for restoring this valuable tool for Congress. Like Stewart says Congress can’t design anything and I can go back in my archives where I suggested they take a look at IBM Watson to help them model, private industry does this right and left, pays off with those math models at Citibank to get richer.
IBM Watson Going to Work At Citigroup on Wall Street–Congress Didn’t See Big Data As A Tool (Hadoop Framework) When They Had Their Chance…For Consumers The Attack of the Killer Algorithms–Chapter 22
I watched part of the Cruz show…and tweeted good stuff and got a lot of hits from readers who were tired of Green Eggs and Ham. If we had better educated Congressmen that fully understood the IT infrastructure, the cost of it and the time it would reduce embarrassing shows like this. Maybe with all the drama shown, the senator go to Hollywood and try a new profession. His perceptions certainly are not what many others have:)
So here’s the deal to educate Congress on how technology and laws are attached at the hip.
Congress Needs a Bigger Brain–Restore the Office of Technology Assessment And Truly Assess What is Useful And Remove The Algo Duping Permeating In Government–Fantasy Perceptions That Are Not Real Can Be A Dangerous Thing
“Reform the market to deal with the problem of pre-existing conditions”…says Cruz..
Stewart has the answer…”the Bor-ax….
Seriously after all of this humor sadly it really shows the inability to perceptualize the reality of technology today and how it impacts the world. Like I said every law has IT infrastructures attached and these folks who like to preach rather than accept and learn more about the reality of the data mechanics continue to make fools of themselves and just waste the time of the US. I’m sure the White House had to be holding their sides in during much of this. One thing for sure it makes you stop and think and realize that there’s more to look for in a Congressman or any politicians than that matter than one who does Soap Opera and OMG routines. BD
