Human nature is silly, isn’t it? Too many companies do next to nothing about security until they’re burned by it. And I read today that a Congresswoman who used to be a staunch supporter of warrantless wiretapping has changed her tune after being the subject of a wiretapping herself. Go fucking figure. Way to demonstrate that you’ve not really thought through the subject over the last several years. Of course, she’ll blame those who did it by insinuating they should be held to higher standards and this was an obvious mistake… (which only strengthens my disdain…)
I’m really restraining myself here as this topic of personal responsibility, empathy, and forward-thinking is something I feel especially strongly about.
