Politico touts infections as promise

A British politico says there is is great progress being made in ecommerce and broadband connectivity – the signs are there because the networks are clogged with botnets. I think most politicians are pretty clueless about tech – and they either can’t or won’t get competent advice on the subject. Nonetheless, calling mass botnet infections progress is ridiculous, particularly considering its harmful side effects – spam, identity theft, computer crashes, and lost productivity.

Maybe the UK government should look into licensing all its PC users.
