Evanston: collision: the best year ever

I have wondered in this journal how in this technological age when positions are known precisely in all kinds of weather ships can still run into one another.  I thank Jason for a link to a long article that provides the answer, part of which is the technology itself, part the human interface with the technology, part human error, and as almost always a series of small failures that cascade into disaster.
