1. I watched Downfall: The case against Boeing this weekend on @netflix by @roryekennedy . Its sometimes easy to forget in the midst of tech and financial terms, that this documentary is first and foremost a story about human tragedy

#Netflix #737MAX
2. and this documentary no doubt leave you with a heartfelt feeling for the people who lost family and loved ones on those two 737 Max flights.

This documentary and @roryekennedy has a lot more on her mind, which I find both fascinating and interesting.
3. The case about the 737Max is a story about an iconic US company, losing its way. A company that built its reputation on selling safety and engineering excellence, who slowly but surely shifted focus towards quarterly numbers and short-term share price gains.

The clock is ticking on the final 24 hours of the Trump presidency. Let's take a minute to acknowledge how the inexperience and chaos of his administration directly affected aviation. 1/x
Trump's first major act was the first Muslim Ban enacted on a Friday(!) night, Jan. 27. Passengers took off with one immigration status and upon landing had another. This led to massive confusion at CBP & prompted airport protests across the U.S. 2/x…
This was the first time aviation had to deal with the fallout of an ill-conceived, in this case illegal, Trump Admin policy. It wouldn't be the last. Some "highlights" of the cluster the following 4 years would prove to be. 3/x

Der abschließende Befund des US-Repräsentantenhauses [245 Seiten!]: Ursache war die #Gier des Konzerns, die zu gutgläubige #Luftfahrtbehörde ist mit schuld. 2/3

1) in all this #737Max thing, electrical/computer engineers like me trust/listen that what the aerospace engineers say. Whenever we say something (especially here on twitter), we get told: "what do you know?" and "oh, you're a programmer, go away". I'm exaggerating, barely...
2) good software engineering skills is a craft that should not be minimized. Yes, you, the pilot, might know PHP and wrote cool things for your web site. But you didn't sit 4 years in university to learn all the special skills to write good code and to doubt everything
3) coming out of engineering school, I didn't even want to get close to embedded software, I didn't want anyone to die from it. I had the impression that embedded system folks were semi-gods that made no mistakes... So, when I worked at Boeing, I steered clear from embedded
