BigBenny: A bit over a decade ago I spent 3 1/2 years in Japan. I used to laugh at how much they used paper to get things done. City hall, business offices, and schools all had these gigantic binders stuffed with all kinds of records and data. At the time I thought of it as a form of social welfare; the more paper they used the more people they needed to shuffle them and look things up. Things were electronic to some degree, but not like in the US at that time.I'm starting to think their system had it's advantages.

Spermbot: The sentence that made me do a double-take was this one: The bank expects to boost annual spending on cybersecurity by 25 percent to about $250 million by the end of the year from 2013 levels, [Dimon] wrote in April.A bank that processes trillions of dollars a year, a bank whose failure would cause systemic problems for the U.S. financial market, was spending only $200M/year on cybersecurity?! W...T...F?!!
