Read this quote today , and nothing can be a better explanation of what's going on in this IT/software industry.
"Programming today is a race between software engineers
striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs,
and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots.
So far, the Universe is winning."
- Rich Cook
Though I might have some issues with the conclusion about who's winning , but nevertheless on whole its definitely a quotable quote.
