Times online report "Probe into how Google mix-up caused $1 billion run on United" reveals that an old newspaper report resurfaced in the Google newsfeed and was accepted as a new story by Financial Analysts and Investors with a resulting slide in share value. The Internet has an alibi - the news story was selected by an automated piece of software which did exactly what it is told by humans. The humans have no excuse. The JustEnoughTechnology solution is, of course for managers to reinforce training and monitoring of staff who display such stupid behaviour. Human nature being what it is I fear that the technology will be blamed and consultants will rush in to preserve the egos of the embarrassed who are already signing blank cheques for them.
In the longer term I would suggest that people entrusted in gambling with millions of dollars of other peoples money should be employed on the basis of their correct response to the question "Do you know what day it is?"
