There was a photo published a few years back that showed a similar mess of wires in a city in India, with the caption: "And this is the country where we call for tech support?" What we have is a lack of organization, which is not the same as a lack of neatness. Some of the very most disorganized messes that I have ever come across were quite neat, but there had clearly never been any consideration about being organized. And, No, there was no method in the madness.

The wiring in the Cray was routed as short and direct as possible in order to improve speed and reduce crosstalk. It doesn't look neat, but it's the way it had to be in order to work.

"But sometimes it’s very hard to see the method in the madness" So what is the method here? If there is one, I'm not seeing it :-)

IMHO, it's far worse when system documentation takes this "layered patchwork" form ... or doesn't exist at all!

In a couple of decades in a previous life swanning around various countries in Africa, I saw plenty of things like this. I did take some pics but whether I can find any I don't know.....doubtful....

The Cray-1, while a nice machine, had some pretty messy-looking wiring. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3608/3598449023_6001e8787d.jpg

As Steve Jobs has taught the world.... it's all about good design!

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
