  • I see tons of similar decisions being made for new code as well.

    Decisions which are clearly made with little thought towards the future.

    Trouble is I don't see an obvious name for the overarching term other to invoke Back to the Future's "You're not thinking 4th dimensionally!!!".

    That people can be suckered into trying to beating the Halting Problem, or a design decision that is clearly subject to a Tragedy of the Commons doesn't seem to me to be a general problem, they just don't see far enough ahead.

    Perhaps something along the lines of "Instant Gratification" ?

    (but that doesn't sound so hot...)
