Ah, yes... the Cautionary Tale.
Love those. :-)
This one appears to have been written by someone for whom English is a second (or third; we Americans are language wimps :-) language, and therefore isn't a lyrical as, say, Robin Cook.
That's not a good reason to ignore it.
And it doesn't even *mention* Palladium and other forms of Treacherous Computing (like SATA interfaces with hardware encryption on the link, as have been bandied about in the past.
As things proceed, we're *all* going to have to get as paranoid and hardcore as rms is, folks, or the big sociopathic public corporations will take it all away from us: it's *what they do*.
They can't maximize profit and still leave us able to exercise our constitutional rights. And *they* aren't forbidden to try by that constitution; only the government is.
If you're not scared, you're not paying enough attention.
But who knows; maybe it's just me...
So many things are just me.
