My friend Ed Rackley has a quote from Blake in his sig line:

'A dog starv'd at his Master's gate
predicts the ruin of the State...' -- Blake

I thought of this quote this morning while listening to the news. Atlanta, in addition to not having any water has no gasoline. It was the first time I thought of myself as the dog.

How does this relate to information security? As I noted in May of 2006:

There are other reasons to promote teleworking: disaster preparedness. And as last year's gas Katrina-related gas shortages showed, it's not just about keeping your workforce working in a distributed fashion. Emergency teleworking can reduce gas consumption. In Georgia last year after Katrina, the governor closed public schools for a day to reduce diesel consumption. Of course, this was incredibly annoying to families with children for obvious reasons.
So, here we are again in a shortage with absolutely no plan to promote teleworking or a coordinated effort to decrease fuel usages. The interesting thing is that we have done exactly that in Atlanta. During the Olympics the streets were empty. Obviously, we don't need empty streets, but a little push would no doubt go a long way.

On top of all this, my bank failed.
