I know that this is a "political" board but it seems like we have a lot of very "tech-savvy" people that post here. Is anyone else concerned that a contractor's mistake today, resulting in a cut in a fiber-optics network in Chapel Hill, resulted in a loss of communication amongst courthouses and county offices in all 100 NC counties?
Cut fiber line knocks out state courts' communications
I find this kind of disconcerting myself. It seems like the design of these systems has made us far, far too vulnerable. I think this is a political issue because it raises concerns for public health and welfare , at least IMHO.
