Airbus – A380 – Why Do Projects Fail?
The root of the problem can be traced back to a single decision: the decision to proceed with the project despite the fact that two CAD systems were in use. That decision resulted in design inconsistencies, mismatched calculations and configuration management failures.

Literate Jenks Natural Breaks and How The Idea Of Code is Lost
A crazy amount of code archaeology to discover exactly an algorithm -- specifically 'Jenks natural breaks", works, after decades of cargo-cult copying (via Nelson):

'I spent a day reading the original text and decoding as much as possible of the code’s intention, so that I could write a ‘literate’ implementation. My definition of literate is highly descriptive variable names, detailed and narrative comments, and straightforward code with no hijinks.

So: yes, this isn’t the first implementation of Jenks in Javascript. And it took me several times longer to do things this way than to just get the code working.

But the sad and foreboding state of this algorithm’s existing implementations said that to think critically about this code, its result, and possibilities for improvement, we need at least one version that’s clear about what it’s doing.'
