3. Randy---..."Everyone is legally required to get a driver's license.
Everyone has a minimal level of driving
Randy--..."If you don't have insurance, you
may have to pay for any damages caused by your car. Yes, there are
people that drive with no insurance, cause accidents and the repair
cost is never recouped from them."
Ben> >>Except that , I wonder how easy it would be to "borrow"
another's car for a joy ride and rack up charges for some poor
unsuspecting "good driver"? Anti-theft becomes paramount. i.e
"keys" (no pun intended) of sufficient unbreakable duration
Randy--..."The home DSL market will be a
threat to Internet Security unless the end users get some education on
Ben>>>True. And the liability factor 'ought to be scaled such that new
car defects discovered, (i.e. badly manufactured tires) fall within grace
periods, or liability-free windows, in which comsumers are given
sufficient time to repair. (maybe 2 weeks or so)
Randy..."Anyway, I think EDUs are the "Driving Schools" for future
homeInternet users. Why not help fix the problem? There are a number
ofschools that have great initiatives (JMU, UVA, Stanford, UMich and
others) so the model can work."
Ben>>> So... It appears that we're back full circle to .edu's creating a
suitable parking lot to train drivers, before they're qualified for the
freeway. Darn. I just hate when that happens. Guess I'll still have to
secure our network....Sigh.
