Errordiary: Juxtaposing the Everyday with Safety Critical

This picture shows a lovely contrast between an error in an everyday situation and a safety critical situation. Both the error and the potential error have similar underlying psychological causes but the consequences of their outcomes are very different.

Errordiary is a website and Twitter stream that helps reveal these sorts of interesting contrasts. Errordiary collects errors from the public, which can be funny, frustrating and fatal from different contexts.  Visit Errordiary to learn more about how we are using these ideas for teaching, research and public engagement, and how to get involved.
