So had a minor incident happen today. I was taking minutes for our weekly meeting, trying desperately to keep up and summarizing as I went. One of the things I wrote was apparently too much of a summary, and missed the gist of what was trying to be said. As a result, someone else got into trouble for something that they probably would not have, had they been able to keep track of what was said. This happens as a result of the failure of the written word, especially the poorly written and quickly done written word, to actually capture what everyone means.
