I'd rather say "Nearly ten years later they're still figuring out how to drive it." I.e., they know some of what to do, but other areas still need work. And some individual judges are further ahead on the learning curve than others. I don't like stating it in such a way that implies none of them knows anything, because I don't think that's any more accurate than saying they all know everything.Phil hersh made a great analogy saying that the judging system is like Ferrari. The judges were given it but they don't know how to drive it. Nearly ten years later...they still dont know how to drive it.
I hope the real decisionmakers are having similar conversations.This was a great discussion to have
