Notice Systems That Are Broken
If a broken process or system affects enough people, they will start to complain – and loudly. When the noise gets too deafening, someone enterprising (hopefully you) will inevitably step in to fix the problem. A current example is online plagiarism. Right now, we can’t seem to stop people from copying the work of others and posting it on their own websites without attribution. Writers are getting pretty ticked off, and I think it’s reasonable to expect that within the next five years, a solution will be developed to prevent this type of fraud.
