CHAOS Tuesday #54: is titled “Vendors Overpromising”.  We consider the issue of vendors promising more than they can deliver either on purpose or because of a lack of understanding.  Our special guests are Dave Bicknell & Tony Collin authors of Crash: Ten Easy Ways to Avoid a Computer Disaster.  We will discuss with Tony and Dave a new program of the UK Government of using small businesses to deliver projects on a frame around G-Cloud.  Hans Mulder will follow-up with comments.  In addition to Tony, Dick and Hans we have Evan Sorensen in our segment CHAOS on the Couch covers how to deal with lying. Lee Gesmer in CHAOS on the Law presents Part 2 of the Oracle versus Google copyright and patent lawsuit.  The book review is “House of Lies”. In this program we explore:
