Bloomberg reports that Google and other Valley companies are contributing “dozens of computer engineers and programmers to help the Obama administration fix the U.S. health-insurance exchange website.”
The help is arriving as the government’s main site to offer health insurance remains plagued by repeated outages a month after its Oct. 1 debut. Among those assisting are Michael Dickerson, a site reliability engineer on leave from Mountain View, California-based Google, and Greg Gershman, the innovation director for smartphone application maker Mobomo, according to a government official who asked not to be identified because the moves haven’t been made public.
The Google engineers are in for a rude awakening when they see the government cafeterias.
