Has anyone asked Tim Berners-Lee about child pornography lately? Cell
phones are used by drug dealers, and my dicing knife doubles as a deadly
weapon. There's a world of difference between the inventor's intended
use and those secondary uses.
It's a bit silly to confront Ginsu about knife crime, is all I'm saying.
"How's about making knives less sharp?"
"I believe that usability is a security concern; systems that do
not pay close attention to the human interaction factors involved
risk failing to provide security by failing to attract users."
