This episode is a little different from our regular episodes with our regular cast. It is a short essay on Vannevar Bush, an essay about the origins of the fundamental ideas that guide how the U. S. Government deals with scientific research and scientific institutions. It is designed to give you a little deeper understanding of the relationship between science & government and to give you that understanding in just 10 minutes. 
A binge of three episodes. A binge for your workout. A binge for your commute. Or just a binge to catch up on the episodes that you missed. This binge has three episodes from the fall. In the first Don Shafer of the Athens group talks about deadlines and why software projects can run late. In the second , Rohit our overly enthusiastic IT guy, explains why Walter P Shewhart, the inventor of the cycle of continuous improvement is so important. In the last, Pierre Bourque tells us about the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge and why you should know about it, even if you don’t use it.
