Peter Alvaro, Severine Tymon - Abstracting the Geniuses Away from Failure Testing
Ordinary users need tools that automate the selection of custom-tailored faults to inject.

Pat Helland, Simon Weaver, Ed Harris - Too Big NOT to Fail
Embrace failure so it doesn't embrace you.

Michael W. Shapiro - Self-Healing in Modern Operating Systems
A few early steps show there's a long (and bumpy) road ahead.

Paul P. Maglio, Eser Kandogan - Error Messages
Computer users spend a lot of time chasing down errors - following the trail of clues that starts with an error message and that sometimes leads to a solution and sometimes to frustration. Problems with error messages are particularly acute for system administrators (sysadmins) - those who configure, install, manage, and maintain the computational infrastructure of the modern world - as they spend a lot of effort to keep computers running amid errors and failures.
