Daily Productive Sharing 074 - 软件还未触及的领域

One helpful tip per day:)

(The English version follows)

身为程序员,我们可能理所当然地以为 ‘software is eating the world‘,然而现实世界中,还有很多领域是软件还未触及,或者是软件触及不那么深入的。今天的分享中,作者就非常惊讶医疗领域,法律领域的软件是多么的难用。

这样的例子比比皆是,比如我最近使用的某一政府服务,他们居然通过短信和邮件把账号密码明文传输给用户。也就是说,他们不仅明文存储用户的账号和密码,还在传输中使用明文。要知道,这些账号里面存储着用户所有的实名认证信息,只要泄露了,完全等于让用户裸奔了。至于这个服务的稳定性更是可笑,时不时地来个服务器端报错,用户都不知道啥时候能够提交成功。

Good software makes work easier, but bad software brings us together into a family.

So the software people get amazing tools that let them build amazing apps, and the climate people get lots of Fortran.

The next phase of growth for our industry, finally, should be to learn about the world before we try to change it.

As programmers, we may take for granted that 'software is eating the world', yet there are many areas in the real world that are either untouched by software, or not as deeply touched by software. In today's post, the author is surprised at how difficult it is to use software in the medical and legal fields.

There are many examples, such as a government service I recently used, where they transmit account passwords in plain text to users via SMS and email. In other words, not only do they store the user's account number and password in plain text, they also use plain text in the transmission. It should be noted that these accounts store all of the user's real-name authentication information, and as long as it is leaked, the user is completely naked. As for the stability of the service, it is even more ridiculous that every now and then a server-side error is reported, and the user does not even know whether the submission is successful.
