We need to be willing to pick sides when there are clear moral or humanitarian issues.


Imaginary problems, the root of bad software


People who are bred, selected and compensated to find complicated solutions do not have an incentive to implement simplified ones. — Taleb

It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it! — Upton Sinclair

But everyone needs to keep solving the imaginary problems, because if they stop, if they start focusing on the real problems, they might realize the whole system is broken. They might realize Debra has been sitting in that corner, staring at uptime graphs of the internal server farm for 10 years, despite the fact the company moved to AWS 5 years ago. They might realize 99% of their job is to perpetuate the existence of someone else’s job… and that’s a hard realization to take in, an impossible one for most, I dare say, so they find a way of coping.
