22. The myth of the secured, networked computer. There has never been such a thing,

 

and everybody that understands how these miracles of human communication work, knows it.

But, they couldn't very well sell you hundreds of billions of dollars of crap, nor rid themselves of millions of workers, if they informed you of that fact, now could they? The internet, not just the www., was specifically designed to be open so that all of this is connectivity could happen, but that also makes it inherently insecure. Believe it or not, there were a bunch of us talking about this when they first started convincing you all to put your lives on line.
