Daily Prompt: You’ve Got the Power

You have the power to enact a single law. What would it be?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us RULES.

Cheri Lucas Rowlands has given each the power to change one thing with a law, and I’m sure she didn’t realize how many megalomaniacs there are out here. The world might be a different place in the morning.

As I ponder what dastardly wrong I can right with my one law, many thoughts pop into my mind. From requiring all nations to enact and enforce  legislation to make sure the environment  we leave for our children, is as healthy if not better than, the condition we received it from our parents. Upon serious reflection, not sure if one law would cover this, as it would be so wordy, there would be enough loopholes to keep a few generations of legal types busy, so I’ll have to scratch that idea.

Considering the number of bad drivers, you can find all over the world, perhaps a law to exhibit courtesy. Nope, that won’t work either, too many one finger salutes would end up being misinterpreted as “your number 1 in my books”.

So after much deliberation, I would enact a law that would benefit humanity. Almost all of us have fallen victim to buggy software. So simply put, if a company releases software, it would have 90 days from the time of a bug being reported to produce a patch that would fix the problem. Now here’s where the legal types would have to start work, drafting this in a way that, doesn’t stifle new product development, yet ensures companies are releasing stable, dependable software.

After all if your car had as many problems, as a lot of software, most of us would be walking, cycling or taking transit to work more frequently.

  1. Good idea! Had to laugh about the last part because this was something I had in mind many times. How often did I purchase a software and had to wait weeks and even in some cases months for a stable release of the software.

    There are many devs who take things serious and have a nice patch rythm. But there are also those who give nothing about it. Too bad if you payed their product. I support your idea pretty much. Good thoughts!

    • Yes there are many good devs and companies out there. This law is to those who ship beta versions as finished product, and those who test the software on one machine, then tell the customer, but it worked fine in our tests.
