Madison Hackers Dominate Local News

First up, a very smart guy demonstrates it again: Caleb Pourchot gets his pic and story in the Wisconsin State Journal for leveraging a rebate from Wisconsin Focus on Energy (who actually funded a project I worked on--small town, Madison) and some tax credits to make a solar water heater more affordable.(Note that the above link is from their news pages, not their archives; it may decay.)

Next, a Department of Revenue software system is found to have some serious bugs that will probably mean Dane County will have to pay back almost $300 grand in miscomputed sales taxes to the state.

So a Madison writer/hacker responds wth an essay on software quality and transparent process.
