Security as a Disease

Lovely post by Rob Meijer on the capability list about how to write a useful Wikipedia article (in particular, for cleaning up the entry on ambient authority):

A good way for me personally to think about the audience for infosec related subjects, is to think about myself on medical related subjects.

...

In this case, the main things you would want to know would be:

* How do I know if I have ambientitus?

If I know I don't have ambientitus, I'm out, off to find other possible sources of my symptom. If it is likely that I have ambientitus, I would want to know:

* How bad is it? Is it fatal?

...
That totally made my morning. Worth reading.
