Technology Review has an interesting list of 10 technology disasters that each show how new applications of technology can go horribly awry. I hadn’t heard of a lot of them, but that was part of the point; the editors passed up a lot of the more well-known disasters (like the Challenger and Chernobyl) and found what they felt were better lessons learned through failure. It’s worth a quick read.


In the early 80’s I spent a ton of time working in Kemper Arena where the roof collapsed in 1979, I would always stay at the Hyatt that shared the same engineering firm.
