Obama's Trauma Team: Inside the Nightmare Launch of HealhCare.Gov -- TIME

From the latest Time cover story; perhaps the "trauma team" could visit Boston as well -- see Mass. may give up on still-failing health site (Boston Globe)

"This is the story of a team of unknown--except in elite technology circles--coders and troubleshooters who dropped what they were doing in various enterprises across the country and came together in mid-October to save the website. In about a tenth of the time that a crew of usual-suspect, Washington contractors had spent over $300 million building a site that didn't work, this ad hoc team rescued it and, arguably, Obama's chance at a health-reform legacy."
