Just in: permanently low quality of software

I feel that all too often we have been satisfied with such a low level of quality that we have done ourselves harm in the process. We seem not to be able to use the machine, which we all believe is a very powerful tool for manipulating and transforming information, to do our own tasks in this very field.

-- R. W. Hamming, 1969
