You can workaround this with procedures. Iceland could provide a radiostation which you must monitor being in the area near the vulcano. The radiostation could periodically/automatically say that everything is OK or that it is not. Obligatory notifications that you are entering and leaving the area are often used.

They should not only redesign software for CPU architecture. Most software is created for a single cpu and a single memory space. In real life we have multiple processors, multiple kinds of memory (cache, ram, disk/ssd, raid, san, distributed file systems), network interfaces between server and client (what do you consider 'an application' on the internet?).

And while we are at it: We have issues with software reuse, bugs (in general) and testability, security. Software development is in the pre-industrial age, afaiac.

Before designing a system you want to know which problems are solved ('why?') and they must be tangible. Here are some aspects that would be nice to solve: code reuse is nice to save time, reducing bugs, testability, security, stability, high availability, maintainability... Not all problems are solved well in humans.

If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
