It's hard to explain to regular people how much technology barely works, how much the infrastructure of our lives is held together by the IT equivalent of baling wire.

Computers, and computing, are broken.

Software sucks. It really, really sucks. I have yet to meet a piece of software that didn't make me go "...eh." several times per hour - whether it be a videogame, a browser, or an operating system.

No, the answer isn't more regulation; the answer is more cooperation. Restricting software development would only slow things down and give entrenched organizations total control over our technological future. If we work together, we can make some damn good software.

I, for one, prefer freedom and accept the dangers it entails.
