The problems of debugging a set of enterprise apps doesn’t amount to a hill of beans in that world. It just doesn't. Same for a particular industry's regulatory requirements.

+1, this and what follows is why its important to me.

Years ago I worked with a Vietnamese fellow named Say Ok. We had a
shared locker room, and I noticed Say had six or eight scars on his
chest and abdomen, so I asked what they were. They were the scars from
the bullet holes when the North Vietnamese tried to murder him because
he wanted a democracy and better life for his children.

I can't even talk about some of the obscene things I know are going on
in some US DoD programs. I'm hoping/waiting for Glenn Greenwald, Laura
Poitras and Ewen MacAskill to break those stories.
