Cover Quote: January 2012

Every technology has certain forms of risk. You can’t buy a car, take it out on the road, and assume you aren’t going to run into things. [...] Where is the balance that should be struck? It’s kind of the same thing with computers. If you don’t know what you’re doing, you can’t just plug it in, turn it on, and assume it’s going to work safely. For people to do that is either stupid or irresponsible (or both).

- Eugene H. Spafford
