    We have NO AIRSPEED! How even a checklist is not enough…

    How do the flight crew, ground crew and operations personnel of a commercial airliner miss crucial steps to verify that the aircraft has working airspeed indicators before takeoff? There are so many lessons to be learned here that will help any industry. Have you heard of Dr. Reason’s Swiss Cheese Model?

    This was part of the discussion we had on our Industry Panel today for May. Enjoy!...

    More falsehoods programmers believe about time; “wisdom of the crowd” edition

    A couple of days ago I decided to [write down some of the things I’ve learned about testing][testing_post] over the course of the last [several years.][codeascraft] In the course of enumerating the areas that benefit most from testing, I realized that I had accumulated a lot of specific thoughts about how we as programmers tend to abuse the concept of _time._ So I wrote another post called **“[falsehoods programmers believe about time][original_post],”** where I included 34 misconceptions...

  • Falsehoods programmers believe about time

    Falsehoods programmers believe about time

    Over the past couple of years I have spent a lot of time debugging other engineers’ test code. This was interesting work, occasionally frustrating but always informative. One might not immediately think that test code would have bugs, but of course all code has bugs and tests are no exception.

    I have repeatedly been confounded to discover just how many mistakes in both test and application code stem from misunderstandings or misconceptions about time. By this I mean both the interesting...

    FDA clears Fitbit algorithm that passively scans for signs of AFib

    Google confirmed that its Fitbit wearables are now FDA-approved to detect atrial fibrillation, most commonly known as an irregular heartbeat, which can lead to stroke or heart failure. What will be different, we report, is that “the new tech provides a more always-on approach to AFib detection, versus the periodic checks currently available through the Fitbit app.”

  • Why Airlines Are Worried About 5G

    Why Airlines Are Worried About 5G

    AT&T and Verizon’s expansion of nationwide 5G service, which was delayed for months because of concerns about airplane safety, kicked off last month without the travel chaos that airline executives had warned about.

    A last-minute deal to restrict the high-speed cellular service near airports avoided mass cancellations, and the F.A.A. expanded the list of planes approved to land in low-visibility conditions at airports where 5G service is deployed, the focus of airlines’ conce...
