I'm in the UK, so I guess if the NHS project hits it's due date of 2018 
or thereabouts, I'll have to eat my words. Remind me then ...

And for all that, bear in mind that I'm not disputing that GOFAI 
technologies can do useful work in highly controlled closed 
environments. Despite the size and complexity of the NHS I think it 
still falls within that category. It's certainly a far cry from the 
open environments that SW technologies are alleged to address.
