I believe this may be a bit hard, so I will provide som clues on my facebook page before the answers will come in a blog post.
Today some 70 (!) nations have put up border walls or fences. (According to the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei in an interview in TIME).Are we moving in the wrong direction? Or is this just a result of some politicians having lost their way, while most of us still see the madness of putting walls between human beings?
“The table goes through the wall, and the people eat the same food and drink the same water and listen to the same music. For a minute we were forgetting about it, passing salt and water and drinks as if there were no wall.”We know that fences will never successfully keep people apart. And they will for sure not protect anyone. Pink Floyd showed us that long ago, in their rock opera The Wall. Reuben Tasker describes the moral of the story like this:
Though there will almost always be personal and social barriers erected out of fear, oppression, pain, and isolation, it’s the job of every socially conscious individual and community to never rest in tearing down the walls that separate us.
"Sometimes several days, but sometimes not even ten hours"
"What does it take to get it stable again?"
"Oh, everything is fine after a re-boot, but..."
"So if the operator restarts it before it crashes, it will be fine several hours until it needs another reboot?"
"Well, yes but... we can´t ask them to reboot it every now and then!"
"No, but we can ask them to reboot every twelve hours. Until we come with the next release where we will have solved the problem."That became our new goal. Make it stable for twelve hours. That goal we made. In time. We were first and we got plenty of market share! (It was at the celebration party that Jack told me that I had looked at him like something the cat had dragged in.)
It is better to come with something good in time, than with something great too late.
And the best part of all. I will not choose between something good in time and something great too late. I will do something really good now, and together with others I will do something even greater a little later :).
