Building solid software
"The software industry produces bad products. Rather than accept that, we should do something about it. In other industries, making shoddy products is an incredible liability. Can you imagine the fallout if auto manufacturers produced cars that were as unreliable as the software that currently floods the market? It would be a catastrophe! Other industries have learned to incorporate better production methods into their manufacturing processes to ensure quality in their products. How come the software industry is not doing the same?"
