While they're worrying about Weiner's penis
By Dave Winer on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 5:24 PM.

A picture named sorry.gifWith all the hacks in the news, you gotta wonder how the government wasted any time trying to blame Julian Assange for the problem. Wasn't the issue really how did the government let this happen. If it's such a serious breach, and what does it say about their awareness of security? #

With the breach at the IMF it's becoming pretty clear how fragile our financial infrastructure is. If there were to be a breach inside the financial system, in the space where our bank balances are defined, well that could be the end of civilization right there. #

What would you do if when you went to the ATM to draw out cash for the weekend it said the bank had gone out of business. What if all the ATM's said that? #

I hate to say this, or even ask the question -- isn't this kind of meltdown inevitable? And no, imho, there is nothing you can do to prepare for it. #

Meanwhile our leaders and the reporters who cover them are interested in a congressman who posted pictures of his penis on Twitter. #
