'Good enough' improves computer efficiency too

The engineers at Purdue have built a deserved reputation for precision, but now a few of them are discovering some of the virtues of imprecision. Clayton Christensen and his Innovator's Dilemma/Solution colleagues have long preached the power of "good enough" products to disrupt the incumbents' product development and lifecycle pathways, so is it possible that the new Purdue chips will disrupt incumbent computing?

That's probably a long way off, but it's worth considering which projects you should pursue towards perfection and which you leave at "good enough" so that you can move on to others.

A New Year's Resolution?

I'm leaving this blog post as is.
