Memo to Mark Sedwill: Here's how to reboot government IT

southen bastard


Unlike many pundits, the professor has industry experience, as an IBM-er, ranging from programming assembler to systems analysis.

How many IBM projects for govt have actually worked ? come in at less than 10 times the original budget ? not had to be reworked at considerable cost? not been thrown out as totally unworkable?

Well, that is where a lot of that energy is going - desalination.

The oil will run out, but so will the water from the natural aquifers. And when the oil runs out, those desalination plants will grind to a halt. It's not like they are transitioning to solar power for them to work. How much would that cost? To design? Build? Run?


well Solar de sal is more cost intensive than other forms, for the first 5-6 years then its almost freeeeee after that

To design?

already been designed,


can get turn key units from Canada and other places


Can get the monkeys to run them , its prity simple , tho for an arab i dont know.
