A person is going to meet his grandfather who is dying, so he could spend last few moments with his grandfather and tell how much he loves him. That person uses a Bus application to check for the bus time table and notices that there is a bus coming in 2 minutes which is going that way. He runs to the closest bus station and waits for 15 minutes for the bus to arrive but nothing comes. Then he gets a SMS saying that his grandfather just passed away. If he could’ve known that the bus is going to be delayed, he should have used a taxi instead of waiting for the bus. What actually happened was that Bus application has lied to him by providing wrong information. The delay has never been reflected in the Bus application.
Moral of the story: – Even though we design/develop intangible things called software/application, we must think more humanly and respect humanism. So as software designers/ developers we have a great responsibility towards the entire humanity. Hope you guys will agree with me . Don’t you?
