The Art of Invention :)

Yours Truly is back from building databases and solving the world's problems, this time with a riff on Rube Goldberg and why Rube's unique approach to design applies to government in ways that can't be made up. For starters, the F 35, the multi trillion dollar fubar unable to fly through clouds. 

And we haven't even discussed healthcare, the siloed, proprietary and closed system operating totally outside of the net, complexified beyond belief, a system that will never, ever work as intended as long as the environment remains as uncompetitive and closed as it truly is.

Taxes, 20,000 pages and counting, the most complex document on earth, keeps metastasizing every month, only accessible to the upper 1/10th of 1% and big corporations able to grease the system by paying top dollar to minions to enable the GEs of the world to pay no taxes. 

And the beat goes on. :)
