Bureaucratic Hyper-Rationalism

Bureaucratic Hyper-Rationalism. Not what I expected to find here, an analysis of an unitelligible Powerpoint slide from Boeing that may have contributed to mis-analysis of Shuttle Columbia’s insulation damage before its disastrous end. Edward Tufte calls the overstructured style “bureaucratic hyper-rationalism” – sounds like my main thread ? [via Jorn again] Rodcorp also picked-up on the link, and points out the evocation of Tufte and Feynman analysing the Challenger disaster too.
