November 08, 2004 - Murphy's Law and NASA

A couple of weeks ago Slashdot had a discussion "Murphy's Law Rules NASA". While the MSNBC article that was the occation for the topic was interesting in itself, what I found really notable was the writeup by the submitter. It contained the best summary argument I've seen for using Agile feedback-driven processes in favor of big up-front just-dont-make-a-mistake processes: "Human error is an inevitable input to any complex endeavor. Either you manage and design around it or fail."
