With all the discussion about rules and responsibility in the wake of the Gulf disaster, this installment of the Tinker's Toolbox deals with electronic safety regulation and the role of the engineer in the process. Interesting points brought up include the issue of safety versus reliability, at what level of the marketplace should regulation originate, and the issue of cost-effectiveness in the creation of standards.
