Is there such a thing as too much automation?

Thinking of automation as a competitive cognitive artifact, and on ways to minimise the associated risks

Automation is fantastic for many reasons - it saves time, reduces errors, and enables people to perform extremely complex tasks with little to no understanding of what is being done directly.

Mapping system couplings and dependencies for discovery and profit

Crowdsourcing and social engineering combined with open-source tools to map your systems

Have you ever wondered just what would break if that system (you know the one) went down? Do you actually know what systems depend on it? How do the reports get from it to Marketing? In this post, I’ll describe a simple technique I’ve developed to surface and share all this juicy, interesting information.
