S.F. programmers build alternative to healthcare.gov

CBS News, November 11, 2013
On Friday, President Obama had this to say about problems with the Obamacare website during a speech in New Orleans: "I promise you, nobody's been more frustrated. I wanted to go in and fix it myself, but I don't write code." But plenty of programmers do write code. And three of them have created their own website that addresses some of the most annoying problems with HealthCare.gov. In a San Francisco office shared with other tech start-ups, three 20-year-olds saw HealthCare.gov as a challenge. With a few late nights, Ning Liang, George Kalogeropoulos and Michael Wasser built "thehealthsherpa.com," a two-week-old website that solves one of the biggest problems with the government's site.
