Abstract

You can’t unscramble an egg. You break it into a bowl, mix it, cook it, and eat something very different from what you started with. But if the shell were to fall in at step one without your noticing, then you must discard the inedible result and restart the process. Similarly, when an information technology (IT) project is ill‐conceived, often the only way to change the outcome is to start again. Every system, from a mailing list to an airplane guidance system, codifies the ethics of its designers and developers.
