Lethal Arrogance: Human Failibility & Dangerous Technologies
Lloyd J. Dumas (au). The intersection of high-risk technology & inevitable human error can result in the very disasters our machines are designed to prevent. This book chronicles past & potential calamities to shock us out of the belief that we are safe in the hands of technology. From terrorism & nuclear accidents to computer viruses & power blackouts, the landscape of our technological culture poses the threat of swift & sudden destruction. Here is a common sense approach to risk assessment in a world evolving beyond our control. Presents a “calculus of catastrophe,” an intelligent & aware evaluation of the disasters we can foresee & prevent, the risks that are too unlikely to worry about, & even the technologies that are too hazardous to warrant their use.
