This talk is about failure. Technical debt is an apt description for the accrued bubblegum and duct tape hacks, manual changes and processes which exist only in oral histories. If it's not automated, it's probably technical debt, and even then... In this talk we'll use an open source project's infrastructure as a cautionary tale.

With technical debt, you can't ever declare bankruptcy or get bailed out. Are you sure about that manual change you just made?
