fiatjaf, why diesn't that make sense?

Antifragility is a property of systems in which they increase in capability to thrive as a result of stressors, shocks, volatility, noise, mistakes, faults, attacks, or failures.

Never read Antifragile by Taleb. Just seems to make sense.

The system doesn't become stronger by itself. It literally needs devs to fix the bugs, or the system would die.

Sure, I can see that nuance.

I guess I was working with the premise that devs fixing bugs on a project is a system of sorts.

I think you could look at it that way, counting the devs as part of the system. But if you do that, they become the weakness. Attack the devs that fix the bugs & take down the system.

Devs are the white blood cells, fixing the system when it needs fixing, but there is nothing antifragile about that.
