Interesting and excellent read about how the other half lives but I'm curious as to what is its relevance to the regular folk that frequent here?

The web is not about you. it is about how others react and respond that has a direct influence on your experience. The last time I checked they say the web is interactive. Not some things but all things effect the network.

Besides that, the web is about human behavior.

I think you missed my point completely. My read is this is about security on a level that I would say most folks that are regulars here are very well aware of. Preaching to the choir as it were. You say its not about me and then you say it relates to and influences my experiences.....which one shall it be? I read "Home Security"...which to me is Proactive....not interactive. Perhaps I have it wrong if so I stand corrected....on something.

You would be surprised to find (or not) that local folk models drive our beliefs and ideas on the web.

To protect yourself is being proactive. To understand that when people have beliefs and make decisions about security on a network (good or bad) how it affects others is interactive. Security is something you do for yourself
that is also interactive with respect to the network at large.

The study of folk models relative to the web allows us to better understand what goes on as a whole.

Stream of consciousness dialog does not a sage make. Sorry.

Does make a good novel though. In my opinion, the best English language stream of consciousness novel is "Under The Volcano" by Malcolm Lowry, a Faustian story of an alcoholic trying to regain his long-suffering wife. Told from a display of the alcoholic's stream of consciousness. (And then -- to take second place -- there's the first half of Faulkner's "The Sound and the Fury," a tale "told by an idiot...," literally)

What others do on the web effect you every time you interact with the network. To believe otherwise lacks scope
and an understanding of what you claim to know something about.

So what you are saying John is that information on the web is static? That it isn't a stream that affects others? What bullshit.

Pray tell me where I even hinted at that. We are discoursing in English are we not?
