"It's Fine," They Said. "Just Ship It," They Said.

Abstract

Ask yourself - Have you ever worked in an environment where pressure is applied to the staff by middle management or executives to ship a product? Have you ever experienced the awkward silence when an engineer asks the management about features or security that was overlooked or purposefully avoided to make a product ship date happen? Are you familiar with the term 'minimum viable product'? Well, my friends, you are in luck, for today I shall be taking you on a safari. Today I'll be showing you what happens in the real world when scenarios like the one I've just described are put into reality, and products are shipped with not a care in the world. 

Powerplants, electrical switching stations, acid tanks, cows, chickens - even curtains. People are putting nearly everything they can on the internet for no other reason than because they can. I'd like to introduce the 'Internet of Things' to you! Please make sure your helmets are fastened on tightly, and please keep your hands and feet inside the vehicle. Things are going to get weird.
