Are CTO's of largish organizations still not part of the hacker news audience ...? That seems a bit of a damning statement to be about the population of CTO's ...

I'm sure some are on HN, but it's definitely not "the place" for them, and many have probably never heard of it

I would be shocked if any CTOs of large organizations browse HN. Large orgs put people in those positions that are more about theory and future thinking over current knowledge.

It's expected that high-level executives of large organizations deal with planning and strategy rather than low-level technical details. They're not following language features or implementations.

However in that case, this whitepaper (and many others) are damning in how little they actually state and why so many technical decisions go wrong.
