Global Worming

If someone writes a worm that will propagate, lie really low and bring down the whole world down one fine wintry morning, what the hell will happen to life as we know it? The world would be wiped clean of data and everybody will dispute the back ups in every possible way…

We bet our life on softwares that have a pretty face. History laughs at the fate of men who did the same things in other areas of their lifes.

May be all of us will go back to farming and hunting… And may be it won’t be that bad a thing! :-)
