I once worked with a team of people that celebrated the biggest mistake or embarrassment made by someone that month. Â You got a trophy that was yours for the month, until – you hoped – someone did something significantly dumb enough for it to be passed on to their desk.
It was proudly displayed. Â It was done with good humour and a recognition that mistakes are what makes us human.
If the Fairfax newsroom doesn’t have such a tradition, they should start one, and Amy Maas can be its inaugural recipient.
