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

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.

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....

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

"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 :-)

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.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
