Fail Fast. Fail Often – But Do it Responsibly

Quick addendum to the last post.

The “Fail fast, fail often” mantra is good advice if you’re prototyping in your lab. It is not a good idea if you’re rolling it out to the vulnerable communities you’re trying to serve. The unintended negative consequences of a failed experiment can be substantial. So, make that “Fail fast, fail often – responsibly”.
