Why maintain complexity Super Lloyd?
While all the answers seem to dissolve over time like plaque the best questions persist?
There is a huge problem with the prosthetics we are wearing. They are infected with malignant complexity. All the machines we are becoming dependent on are infected with a sort of cancer that has them needing to grow constantly... the code has to grow to cover the complexity in hardware and thus the hardware has to grow to cover the code overhead and on and on... and the curve is not supportable?
Reduce and streamline?
I challenge code and hardware manufacturers to build it and they will buy it. It being a system made in the country where it will be used. In factories that are secure... not kind of secure but absolutely secure. Build a dedicated user platform coupled with a separate and dedicated security interface with the outside. Put in one box a processor dedicated to one job, to serve the user that is protected by an optically coupled and dedicated security processor. The vast majority of the overhead in code is due to two things. One is the need to interface with a universe of devices that are full of vulnerabilities, including those made in a competing and or adversarial country? The second is integrated security stemming from all the compatibility needs, complexity of code and constant changes in all of the above. Why, oh why, not remove the negative feedback loop completely? At least do so in the most important infrastructure?
... The current state of United States computer infrastructure is an abortion! That is not my opinion it is Word!
thank you for reading my rant on how we are dependent on unnecessary complexity and prosthetic devices that are a huge threat to Humanity.
