[Final version -- flights are done and I'm on the ground in Florida] “All the most important mistakes are made on the first day.” – The Art of Systems Architecting (Maier & Rechtin) Project Orca was the Romney campaign’s technological effort to track in near-real-time actual voting in precincts all over the United States, with [...]
