The author claims that a systematic bias toward publishing a positive outcome on certain technological innovations in microlithography can have disastrous consequences. He said that being clear about the challenges can encourage others to help overcome the errors. He stated the reasons for ignoring undefeated difficulties of certain innovations such as not to embarrass oneself or collaborators or friends and not to give too many clues to the competition.
