The trolly problem
This is a great presentation. Wish I could see it live. Perhaps we will have to arrange a session at XTC with an overhead projector.
As the person who stated that the InfoQ piece was a "Hatchet Job" I would like to check whether you climbed the ladder of influence on my intent. You assume in a very data based approach that I wanted to use the official definition of hatchet job. I did not. I used "Hatchet Job" in its colloquiall meaning a bad job.
If someone had checked if my definition of "Hatchet Job" was the official definition as you describe, I would have backed away from the term.
It just goes to show how hard it is to do this stuff. Its good stuff so keep it up.
