Blog Editor’s Note: This is a great example of making a system more resilient with a better user interface.
As a helicopter pilot, at every new duty station it would take me several weeks to memorize the latitude and longitude of a new base so I could program the flight management system without looking at my crib sheet.
In 2016 when I read that my office was at fuel.mercy.mixed I remembered from that point forward. It has been in my email address box ever since.
Three words are also much better in a distress situation when folks are stressed and could confuse a series of lat/long numbers when calling for help.
