I know it is not Friday, but I will be off on vacation for a couple of days and did not want to deprive you of some fun, so here it is a couple of days early.
It would seem logical that the more permanent that something is the more verification you would perform. Take our industry as an example. Hardware gets verified more than software because of the time and expense related to fixing problems. A chip gets verified more than a board because the time and cost to fix a chip is longer and more expensive than for a board. So you would think that an information plaque at a major San Francisco attraction would have been proof read before casting it into bronze. The attraction in question is the fountain commissions by the Hyatt, close to Union Square. It was designed by Ruth Asawa.
In front of the fountain is a plaque and let’s say, you would have thought it would have been proof read, but in this case, it seems as if that was unimportant.

I visited this fountain while I was in San Francisco for DAC. If you are interested in knowing more about this fountain, visit my personal blog for photos and description.
