The Era of Expert Failure


Problem: While an expert is likely to know a lot about one particular thing, they will likely not know a lot about a lot of things. The danger evolves when an expert is given broad latitude over things they know and things they know they don't know (but assume they can find out) as well as things they don't know they don't know. The last is most dangerous, because you never discover what that is until it blows up in your face.
