The infinite indifference engine ...

If you are a geek (like me), you will know of Babbages difference engine.

Great idea, never worked until over 100 years later, we had the precision engineering to 'make it so'.

Meanwhile back in the now and the real world of education, I have come to know and love another less worthy concept.

The infinite indifference engine; powered by apathy it has many homes in many walks of life. Through the shrugged shoulders, jobsworth mentality of the zombiecrat sect. Somehow I see this in my professional world as well as in the other more personal domain regarding the care of our daughter.

As an all pervasive force, it sucks the life out of everything it touches, in some Douglas Adams mode, the more it grows, the more red tape is generated, the more procedural an organisation becomes.

Self fulfilling and self powered.

Maybe we need some form of measure to undersand the power (or potential) or any infinite indifference engine running in a corporation near you.
