Great historical perspective of the strengths and weaknesses of the Internet.  Qnother reminder that we all need to care MORE about privacy and security, the foundations upon which Internet freedom rest.

“the people who designed the network trusted each other, and by extension, all the other people who would use the system. They were worried about communication, not security, and they didn’t think in terms of intrusion from within. As a result, the Internet is frighteningly vulnerable to malicious disruption from the inside.”
