The Blame Game doesn't accomplish much. If there's a moral to the story, it's that innovation entails risk. Progress is always a game played against the unknown. It you don't want to take chances, don't innovate. If you admire progress, don't fault innovators.

Architects certainly should have a sense of grave responsibility about risk. The quest for novel innovation is inherently perilous.
But the only way to avoid risk is to avoid living.

Mistakes are unfortunate but don't be so indignant about honest mistakes, unless you would have no one venture anything different from the tried and true.
