Actively seeking out our mistakes

A wonderful quote from Dave Winer’s (sometimes referred to as the father of blogging and RSS) article "What’s so hard about a mea culpa" at scripting.com

I come from a profession, software development, where we actively seek out our mistakes. We have formal processes for it. We teach our users how to report the mistakes, so we’re more likely to understand what they’re saying. We’d be nowhere if we tried to deny mistakes. Bugs could never be fixed, processes could never be corrected, we’d never move past the mistakes we made in the past.
