On Truly Awful Ideas
Many posts ago I wrote about bad ideas that required bravery and were still executed.
Without stealing Benedict's thunder, the gist is there are awful ideas that should never be executed, like poking holes in encryption.
Ideas like that require the bravery of saying no.
The consequences are known, or often unknown, and the risks are too high.
Winning in these situations means shutting down truly awful ideas for everyone's sake.
