Great things are done but we also find ourselves getting into trouble occasionally as we develop these algorithm.

    Funny that our life is such influenced with Algorithms. I hear a lot about algorithms. Mostly in a sentence with computers, but it is interesting that an algorithm can be found in the “real” world shaping and influencing it.
