Told You So?

I’m constantly being badgered by various organisations to ditch paper and conduct all my dealings with them online. And I constantly resist, not because I’m conservative by nature, nor even because I deplore a trend whereby more and more people lose their jobs while more and more profits get siphoned into the pockets of other people already too rich to be taken seriously. It’s because I don’t consider the internet to be reliable enough or secure enough to be trusted.

So was I pleased to read about the current, panic-inducing assaults by ransomware on major IT systems all over the world? No, but I did feel vindicated.
