I found the e-mail below in my junk mail. It may help explain the evolving debate over Cybersecurity.

Subject: Outsourcing communications for the “Evolutionary Application of Random Trends and Happenings” Project
Importance: High

 

To Joint Earth Systems Usability Supervisor

 

I gave you a millennium to get celestial communications working in perfect harmony on the 3rd rock from an insignificant sun. After nearly two millennia of fratricide and tribal genocide in my name, your teams have finally got as far as a sporadically functional terrestrial network with no in-built security. Meanwhile they are cooking the planet because they are using the network to play games (from the harmless and amusing to the malicious and vicious) with each other, instead of trying understand what is happening around them.  

 

I’ve therefore decided to outsource the communications security stream of the EARTH project to SAnctimonious Totalitarians ANonymous next year.

 

Alternatively you have a week to go back and start fixing it – hands-on this time – no delegation.
