One of the first papers any student of the field will read is Fitts and Jones' 1947 paper on the subject. THREAD.
(The paper is foundational because it also argues why further study of human factors is important...)
I, myself, have been guilty of this: vimeo.com/69081899 (from way back in 2013!?!)
A current incarnation of this: @neilkakkar's 2000+ word thunk piece from on "How not to be afraid of Git anymore" posted a couple of weeks ago.
"Don’t be afraid to commit"
"Don't Be Afraid of Git: The Basics"
"Stop Being Afraid of Git and Start Using It The Right Way" (the Right Way!)
"How I got over my irrational fear of git"
"Don't Be Scared of git rebase"
And that's just the first page of results from searching for Git and a single (less-than-great) result of a human-computer interaction.
I consider myself a bit of a version control nerd, and I do truly love the space... but I can't imagine I'll still care much about it in my 100s...
