Matt Cutts on solving big problems with lean solutions at the US Digital Service

Updating the federal government’s digital infrastructure seems like a Herculean task akin to cleaning out the Augean stables. Where do you even start shoveling? Former Googler and current head of the U.S. Digital Service Matt Cutts says it’s not quite that hard — but he’s had to leave his Silicon Valley startup outlook at the door. “In the Valley and San Francisco, they’re geared to move fast and break things. And that’s fantastic to explore a space,” Cutts told me in an interview. “But the g...

Learning to Be Patient When the Waiting Is Slow

My husband recently had an appointment at the VA medical center that is a few hours from our home. Most people like us have to travel some distance to get to a VA hospital. It takes planning to make sure you make your appointments. You have to take into consideration the time of day, if it will be rush hour, the road conditions, the weather, not to mention parking. It can take a good while to find parking and then make your way into the hospital. It takes work on everyone’s part to make sure the...

My Other CV: Dem then, GOP now. But always the same guy.

Over the years this blog has showcased a number of pet issues and themes. And apart from customer service, litigation strategies, lawyering abroad and cultural literacy. One of them has been the importance of thinking independently about law, government, politicians and political ideologies. Or thinking about Anything. There are these days lots of good, and arguably "bad" notions and ideas--nationally and internationally--all along the political spectrum, and there is no reason to pick one par...

Argument analysis: Justices divided on agency deference doctrine

The Supreme Court heard oral argument this morning in a dispute over veterans’ benefits that could become one of the most significant cases of the term. Although the case arose when the Department of Veterans Affairs refused to give James Kisor, who served as a Marine during the Vietnam War, benefits for his post-traumatic-stress disorder dating back to 1983, it has morphed into something much bigger. Kisor and his lawyers have asked the justices to overrule a doctrine that Chief Justice John Ro...
