"The symbol’s modern obscurity ended in 1971, when a computer scientist named Ray Tomlinson was facing a vexing problem: how to connect people who programmed computers with one another."
Once a rarely used key on the typewriter, the graceful character has become the very symbol of modern electronic communication

As I understand the later Columbia disaster, while NASA was at first surprised that the foam insulation would come off the fuel tank and strike the shuttle during launch, by the time Columbia launched they'd seen it happen so many times they assumed it could do no harm. This in spite of the fact that 17 years earlier Feynman would warn against this very posture towards risk: "In his account, much of the reasoning about risk at NASA effectively took the form that, if disaster hadn't happened yet, it probably wouldn't happen next time either."
How Nasa managers' lack of understanding over the concept of risk led to the Challenger disaster.

The Internet of Sh*tty Things.
Nest is shutting down a competitor it bought 17 months ago -- and deactivating the $299 smart home systems that those users purchased at the same time, with no plan to provide a replacement and in violation of the original company's lifetime guarantee.

After NPR reported Bob Ebeling's story on the anniversary of the Challenger explosion, hundreds of people responded. Ebeling, now 89, says those letters "helped bring my worrisome mind to ease."

If this was available for sale I'd buy it immediately.  Probably more than one to give away as gifts.
