Stories

Computers often go wrong. Sometimes a failure kills people. More often, it just costs money. Sometimes the mistakes are in the billions, sometimes it's just a couple of hundred dollars. Sometimes a mistake cancels an event, like the Green Party's yearly convention in 2002 in Germany. Here is a link to a Web site that collects stories about such failures:

If you find others let me know, especially if they cover different stories.
