 Title:     An Illustrated History of Failure

 Abstract:  The average individual is given little scope for failure, at
           least not the type that really matters. The opportunity for
           catastrophic failure, that influences nations or continents,
           has been traditionally reserved for royalty, parliament, and
           others in a position of great leadership.

           However in recent times we have developed a profession
           who have the opportunity to fail like never before. A
           profession that can make mistakes that are so monumental,
           so wide-reaching, and so costly they can shake civilization
           to its very core. This elite group, rarely seen by every
           day society, are the foundation upon which modern society
           depends. The few, the proud, the Software Developers.

           Join us for a voyage of discovery, as we travel back through
           history to some of the most monumental failures the world
           has ever seen.
