If the world was full of engineers we'd be in spaceships flying around the galaxy by now.
Politicians like to get their hands on everything and dumb it up.
Don't forget about corporate talking heads and marketeers getting in the way of their company engineers. THAT is the real problem. The engineer says what the maketeer wants to say and comes up with tech justifications. That doesn't sound too goo either.
Yup. Dave Haynie is a good friend of mine(Google is your friend here). It is quite entertaining to hear him get on a roll about marketing droids and clue-deprived management types. Most enlightening.
And no, the problem is not politicians. That's a common trope used by people who desperately want to believe corporations are their BFF.
jslikThat just happenedPremium
Yes, Dave Haynie is probably THE expert about clueless management killing superior technology...
