Falling from Great Heights

Dangerous (Winter 2014)Sean Murray

We don't often repeat programming here at Tinkering School, but closed the session with a new Dangerous Done Well tradition: falling from great heights.

It's a fun, scary exercise that requires all the risk mitigation skills we practice in Dangerous Done Well. We start with careful preaparation--in this case, building a pillow pit.

Then we escalate the level of risk iteratively--starting with a low jump...

...and changing our technique and setup according to observation. By the time we reached our final height of 50 inches (way taller than most of our team!), it's a pretty intimidating experience. What allows you to take the plunge isn;t hubris--its trust in the team's ability to do Dangerous, Well.
