using the typically catastrophic waterfall model of software development
Somewhat off-topic, but the waterfall model gets a lot of bad press. However, in a properly managed software engineering environment, the only downside is cost. The aerospace industry uses the waterfall model exclusively, because it is the only way to get software that is proven to work to the level of safety and reliability required.
I'm not saying the Danish journal system is not a huge scandal, but don't blame a particular software development methodology.:)
