Another cool piece of triva I recently came across that is more principle than trivia. I present to you Hutber's Law -
This law suggests that improvements to a system will lead to deterioration in other parts, or it will hide other deterioration, leading overall to a degradation from the current state of the system.
I see this law hold true in many aspects of my work life. It reminds me of this podcast that spoke of the Galileo principle (by Tim Harford) that speaks of how improvements meant to solve complex structures end up creating more complications. If only the others on my team could see the same.
