Only knew him by reputation though I am sure he and I must have been at the same ‘Computer Shows’ (e.g., InterOp) at the same time.

Always admired him for his vision. Shame to see him go. But I am getting to THAT AGE. Lot of people I knew are now old (as am I). So Gene Amdahl (who I had met) and now Andy Grove. So two giants from the 1970s/1980s computer age.

Even without me, they can still be awesome. A true IT giant. A U.S. treasure.

This whole disaster, as I keep on pointing out, smacks so much of outright, unmitigated fraud.

It also highlights, indubitably, that Obama is beyond incompetent. He is a disaster. Yes, I now agree. Worst President ever and I AM VERY SORRY that I worked like a black to have him elected and re-elected. Yes, I had my doubts. I am, to the amazement and distress of some, an unashamed Hans Eysenck acolyte — he at his peak in Britain as I was growing up. So, I was worried that he might not be able to cope. BUT, I never, ever, imagined that he would prove to be such as total and utter disaster, an unmitigated failure. I am SORRY. I will not, for the rest of my life, make that mistake again.

Other than because of outright corruption and fraud why would you give such a crucial, multi-million, possibly multi-billion contract to BIT PLAYER IT companies — especially the Canadian-owned CGI with its horrible track-record.

Kickbacks and payola.

Where is Bryan ‘bloody’ Sivak 00 the supposed architect of this tower that collapsed. Why isn’t he being hauled up and investigated. I see that he has stopped Tweeting. Might have FLED the country to avoid having to answer awkward question.

Notice that when they talk about the scam-artist contractors involved in this disaster you don’t hear the names of GREAT U.S. IT Super-GIANTS like IBM, Oracle, EDS, Cisco, HP.

All you hear is bloody Canadian CGI.

Do YOU realize that the world, and that includes China, Korea, India, Germany, France, Britain, are LAUGHING, near hysterically, at the U.S.

This is such an insult to U.S. IT companies and people.

As I have been lobbying since 1988, IT is the ONE Technology Sphere where the U.S. has no equal.

AirBus now competes with Boeing.

Hyundai/Kia and is eating GM’s lunch.

But when it comes to IT, Intel, Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, IBM, Facebook, Linkedin, Groupon, Twitter, Amazon, has NO COMPETITION.

U.S. IT is the envy of the universe.

And now this. I always knew that Eysenck was onto something.

IBM is by no means perfect (after I left). But, IBM doesn’t screw up like CGI. IBM has pedigree and with that pride.

What about EDS?

Obama is so stupid and corrupt.

I am SORRY.
