Is this really as simple as asking What Would Google Do?

A lot of commentators hold them up as the ideal, but Google never had to negotiate a mountain of requirements laid down by bureaucrats and Congress.

Software goes out of control
So you admit that nobody is able to control development process.

Nobody is going to try and gain the control - just the contrary: you suggest to admit the fact and wash hand of.

Re: Software goes out of control
Hei, guys!

You are totally disoriented!

Computer is just machine, nothing more!

Program has nothing in common with ecosystem.

People create it - not nature.

You had fired experienced engineers and now no wonder that you lose the control.

Yes, I know how to create working programs, but I'm out of this system.

Good bye!!
