Chuck Noland fell out of the sky and washed up on an island. Within minutes of experiencing engine failure, his FedEx MD-11 cargo plane crashed into the dark, churning waves of the Pacific. The next morning, he awoke on the windswept shoreline of an uncharted oceanic island. Exhausted and alone, he scurried to gather together an armful of waterlogged FedEx packages that littered the beach. Each package’s contents held an assortment of items, though none would reach their intended destination on time, for they were also stranded on the island, having fallen out of the plane’s cargo hold the night prior. Some items would prove beneficial, while others would not—a familiar dilemma for castaways, as well as software users.
