Professionally I work on safety critical, soft real-time core java systems. Outside of work I tinker in scala, python and bioinformatics.

On two occasions I have been asked, "Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?" ... I am not able rightly to apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.
