So now the humans

So now the humans will not have to read them.; Goodie they are already ignoring a great many of the, and now they can claim ignorance.

I spent a few decades working in electromagnetic compliance. What is that? Our electronics is not supposed to interfere with our radio and television; reception and if we have a transmitter our computer is not supposed to shut down whenever wiki the Mike. That is a pretty course reading of things but it is.

Computers can't make that happen. Computers cannot make manufacturers leave parts out because it is hard to put them in, or to expensive, or are hard to find. Computers cannot make manufacturers perform incoming quality tests on the parts they do buy and statistically valid outgoing tests on products they make. Computers cannot make businesses protect the public from their own products.

Now, if we could get computers to replace lawyers…

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;

But we've proved it again and again,

That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld

You never get rid of the Dane.
