What is this?
Well, if you guessed “minesweeper”, you’d be correct. Actually, reading about it here, Mine Kafon: The low-tech, high-design tumbleweed minesweeper – CNN.com, I got to thinking about something else. You can see the objections to the idea on the CNN article. It is a classic case, though, of someone being too conservative in their objections and missing the point. The creator of this recognizes the limitations. What the critic doesn’t recognize, though, is the limits of his criticisms. To me, any and all approaches should be taken to removing land mines. If this idea helps, so much the better.
When proposing new ideas, look out for those who are too conservative in their objections. Be it a small idea, or a big one like this.
