There's a book, A Hole in the Sidewalk I read a while back. It is about recovery and just NOT repeatedly stepping into the same hole. There is a little wishful thinking in the book but it has some good thoughts simply expressed.
This memory brought to you by Solar Winds. I ran an IT support company for a dozen years and as my focus moved from residential to business I realized that I could not afford to hire the people required to support businesses in the manner they needed and deserved. Businesses tend to either ignore security or think it should be cheap. This syndrome is due to the fact they are using one of the most complex systems and processes in the world as the basis for their business and don't understand or want to understand them. We have someone to do that.
Turns out our government works the same way. But for the cheap part. We continue the Reagan era outsourcing to our great companies. I was taught in the Navy that one can delegate responsibility but not accountability. We're just outsourcing both.( Collapse )
