If you’re a geek, it might be interesting to think about these computers and how bad those decisions are, and how smart the people making those decisions were.
Why?Â Because similar things happen when people make decisions with bigger consequences, like foreign policy, or warfighting.Â Often when complaining about a decision we forget the clarity of hindsight and the need to make decisions without perfect information.
I can still complain about Microsoft Bob, but in the long run that company’s not done too badly, eh?
