On Reviewing Technology

February 11th, 2014 · No Comments · English, other stuff

Within the whole Debian init system debate, within all the heat and personal attacks, Russ Allbery managed to publish a couple calm and insightful posts very much worth reading. One quote particularly struck me.

There is no such thing as a completely impartial review of technology, and you wouldn’t want someone who was completely impartial making technological decisions since it would indicate a disturbing lack of familiarity with the problem area.

Russ Allbery
