Why there will always be tears

It is not IT, but well worth digesting: Daniel Gilbert, Harvard professor, reasoned "He who cast the first stone probably didn't" - and gives some pretty good examples of (mismatched) action and reaction. (free registration required, unless you already have an NYT account)

His conclusion: "Until we learn to stop trusting everything
our brains tell us about others — and to start trusting others themselves — there will continue to be tears".

Pretty fundamental stuff!

Full article appeared in NY-Times, came to me via Peter Hruschka and Tom DeMarco from Atlantic Systems Guild - thanx, guys.
