Sundar Pichai insults engineering
His apology letter has me seeing red with his references to "Engineering Culture". Pichai is referring to his idea of the culture at Google.
Engineering culture is about being honest, and accurate, don't cover up flaws and weaknesses. Ask for and accept peer review. Continuous improvement.
The Boeing 737-MAX is the perfect example of where Google-style engineering culture was substituted for professional engineering culture - and the result was planes falling from the sky and many deaths.
