strategic miscalculation

“People don’t break into banks because they’re not secure. They break into banks because that’s where the money is,” said Janet Abbate, author of Inventing the Internet, on the network and its creators. “They thought they were building a classroom, and it turned into a bank.”

And: 

“It’s not that we didn’t think about security. We knew that there were untrustworthy people out there, and we thought we could exclude them.”

Yeah…the first quote nips my flippant response to the second one but still…that is asking for trouble.

From here.
