    I also agree wholeheartedly with this article. It is extremely well stated, and I applaud Mr. Beattie. I also agree with samhill that vigilance is necessary, however I would point out that there are corollaries with other essential infrastructure. Water lines can be poisoned or contaminated. Streets and highways can be used for a lot of nefarious activity. Electricity can easily kill. Natural gas can explode a house. As a society we are careful to protect as well as we can against these dangers, and prosecute those who violate laws related to them. The internet is no different.

    I agree with everything in this article. I have one caveat that I didn't see mentioned.

    As we continue to become evermore connected via the Internet, regardless of the bandwidth, we are becoming evermore vulnerable to evermore destructive attacks by people who are becoming evermore capable and hostile.

    I wish the Internet, this truly magnificent technological rose, didn't include such a host of potential thorns, but to ignore them is to only suffer more from them.
