A World of change [taken from the yahoo scrum group]

Below is a quote which I find quite interesting and so much reflecting the reality that it made me laugh ;)

Frank Herbert (from his book Heretics of Dune):

"Technology, in common with many other activities, tends toward
avoidance of risks by investors. Uncertainty is ruled out if possible.
Capital investment follows this rule, since people generally prefer
the predictable. Few recognize how destructive this can be, how it
imposes severe limits on variability and thus makes whole populations
fatally vulnerable to the shocking ways our universe can throw the
dice."
