Repeating Past Mistakes

0

I just re-read an old article by P.T. Kidd  where he argued that new technology development was failing to learn from past development efforts.  He cites several mistakes he saw continuing into 1988, and I mention it today because several of the problems he points out are still present today (making many of these mistakes much older than the people currently making them). It’s a good read, and worth the time – but more to the point, it speaks to a larger issue: we continue making mistakes and taking unacceptable risks in this industry because we do not see risks in a general sense, and therefore, we fail to learn from the risky failures of our past.
