Editorials

This section contains editorials I have written over the years in the field of computing. Although they are somewhat tongue in cheek, they attempt to make serious points about failures in the way we approach software and systems development. We could do so much better.

Early articles were produced at the invitation of Lem Bingley to whom I owe my sincere thanks.Note that the October 1996 article about neural networks is missing as it was so badly munged by Word 9-something that I couldn't recover it.
