ONN – Bank Of America Paycheck Protection Program Website Has Form Page Access Problem
The Bank Of America CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program has a problem where it’s website entry page takes you to, not the page to fill out the form for the economic stimulus program, but a page that shows code related to its JSON script, and a header page that appears to point to a server traffic problem.
It appears that Bank Of America set up a separate website for the Paycheck Protection Program, where a business owner is supposed to be able to get a check to help pay employees and contractors during the economic halt caused by the worldwide shelter-in-place policies active now, and ongoing for who-knows-how-long.
The giant banking firm asks you to use the separate website but use your own banking credentials. Yet, Bank of America says you have to have a business banking account with the firm. Fine (But for how long?). Well, why not have a link to a form from the Bank of America website? The form can be on another server, but skip the access credentials page. After all, you have to use your same access key, right?
Whatever the reason, it’s quite clear it doesn’t work. It reminds me of the website set up by the Obama Administration when the Affordable Care Act was first established. The traffic to the website was so great, and its design not appropriate to handle it, that it crashed. Enter Facebook legend Chris Hughes, who led a team of Silicon Valley-based Obama Administration operatives who worked on a new site, launched it rapidly, and solved the problem. Bank of America and President Trump should call President Obama for help.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland News Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland News Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
