death mention, "bus factor" Show more
I really really really don't like the concept "bus factor".
First of all, it's extremely opaque and impossible to parse what it means without knowing the background - it's basically a shorthand for tiny story, that you have to know to understand the phrase.
The concept that someone might become suddenly unable to do volunteer work, without an opportunity to do proper handover - because they were hit by a bus and (presumably?) died.
