“Technology is our name for stuff that doesn’t work yet.”  –Danny Hiller

BopAd has been a universal optimist, in his words, not wanting to see a future that resembles a Rusty Los Angeles but in this last interview in 1999 he’s forced to see the state of things, which are that the explosive growth of the internet was never properly managed or checked for quality!

This is a problem that pervades the software industry; quality is swept out the door.  And this is because with the acceptance of the public of Must-Have software, the driving force for a product is the Rush to Market.  This is why so many software products are released as beta.  It’s also why beta now feels like alpha.

Since the quality assurance department not only is a hinder to this rush to market, it’s not uncommon to see many places only giving a nod to it contracting out to a vestigial QA outfit just to write it down in due diligence reports.

Of course this pretty much is what BopAd is on about:
