WOULD YOU TRUST A COMPUTER

WOULD YOU TRUST A COMPUTER? Here is the new revolutionary airliner for the world; it’s a flying dream, so advanced. Full of electronic gadgets and toys doing all the work, just program the computer, sit back and enjoy the flight. You’re a computer technician six miles above the earth. Beware, though, if something goes wrong, you will die as the computer is always right, a mere man is wrong. It looks like man has become redundant from the cockpit in the name of progress. I think this is not the way to do it; progress isn’t always right – not when 500 people die on a lonely hillside due to some stupid glitch in the system.
