Quote of the Week

When low tech trumps high tech gives us our quote of the week:

Guerrero wisely recognized the limits of technology. Though he and his crew were equipped with wireless phones, at this highly critical moment he would not risk a dead battery or loss of signal.

Instead, Guerrero relied on Lex Parcimoniae, the principle that simpler is better. For two long minutes he stepped back in time and employed wireless whistles, shouts, nods and waves to direct the excavator operators as deftly as a maestro conducting an orchestra.
